“I began the cowshed experience with trepidation and ended it with new friends, new skills and a deeper appreciation of the complexity and beauty of language. The days in the cowshed had a magical quality; you left each day feeling uplifted, touched in a way that is hard to define, but which left a lingering feeling of wellbeing. Mark ‘s teaching style in the shed is a subtle blend of his wisdom, his technical knowledge and his life experience, creating an environment where people feel safe to share their stories over time. It seemed to me everyyone came away from the shed feeling more confident about their skills and more confident in themselves.” (Trish Carroll, June 2008)

“I found the Cowshed Course a truly rewarding experience. Not only is the location inspiring, but the support and feedback from the other aspiring writers on the course, and the excellent and always constructive criticism from Mark, couldn’t help but make me a better writer by the end of it.  If you love writing, and want to be a better writer, this is the course for you.  And the food...well, let me say its worth more than the cost of the course on its own—fresh local ingredients cooked to perfection by Maree, a master cook and most affable host. Its two thumbs up from me.”
