“Thanks to a creative writing course with Dave Lordan, I am now a published writer! Before doing Dave’s course, I’d been writing for a long time but I’d never had much confidence in my work. Dave’s course provided inspiration and encouragement in a relaxed, supportive and fun environment. I’ve now had three stories accepted for publication, I’ve been shortlisted for an international literary prize and I’ve performed my work at two very successful public readings in Dublin. I’d recommend a writing course with Dave to anyone; it’s honestly the best thing I’ve ever done.”

Hi Dave, I heard your poem on Pick of the Week [RTE] this morning and want to say that it is one of the best anti bullying poems I have heard. I work with young people and have just performed a devised piece on bullying – this poem was better than any I have read- love the description of ‘fighting’ back at the end of the poem. The end summarizes coping with living and not being a victim- ever! Thank you. Obvious you have been bullied and you understand this issue so well. Loved the reference to dancing- very spiritual poem.
