‘Simon is a phenomenal tutor. I was continually impressed with his insightful feedback on a range of genres and his ability to get to the heart of literary matters so quickly. It felt like he intuitively understood what I was trying to do, even when I was unable to articulate it myself.’ Diane Miller, six-month novel-writing course
