"Alison Powell of WriteClub is a writer’s dream, a reader who sees your story before you do, an editor with an ear for the rhythm of prose. Her notes helped me carve out the opening for Fire Boy, the novel that helped me find an agent and publisher. Her classes are a godsend for any writer looking for help and inspiration."

"I thoroughly recommend WriteClub to writers of every kind, whether fiction, non-fiction or poetry. My children’s novel, School for Nobodies, was immensely improved in the WriteClub sessions – and found both an agent and a publisher. Alison creates a positive, uplifting and generous environment for writers at every stage of their craft."
