    Hi Nick. I was delighted to stumble across your blog today … for two reasons that spring to mind. One: As someone setting out on a freelance career of my own, I found the information very useful. And two: I’m sure you were my tutor when I completed the WB creative writing course and, if so, you were a great help and source of encouragement for me then, as I feel you will continue to be through you blog.
    Best regards,
    Steve Wand

    Thanks, Steve. Yes, I was a tutor for the Writers Bureau many moons ago. Glad you found my comments on your work in those days helpful. I hope your freelance career is going well.
