Dear Joffre,
Thank you so much for such a wonderful day yesterday. The talk was simply brilliant – and so well pitched to such a wide cross section of ages. 
Your kindness and generosity with the girls at lunchtime was lovely and then straight into the creative writing workshop, which was another triumph.
The girls – and I – thoroughly enjoyed your company, your enthusiasm and your expertise. 
It was just joyous.
St Mary’s Shaftesbury
It was an absolute pleasure to have you in our school. The Power of Words assembly was inspirational. You engaged the girls and boys alike and made them reflect, think and aspire. We were impressed with how mesmerized they all became from the word go.  
The fiction-writing workshops were a blast! They were educational and fun at the same time. You delivered them brilliantly, pitching the subject spot-on and tapping into our students' personal experiences. Even the most reluctant writers threw themselves in. It was a joy to watch.
