I found Julie's workshop on Spill the Beans very interesting. She had a relaxed and conversational style and the fact that it was a Zoom meeting didn't seem to inhibit the flow. The exercise was a lot of fun and it was amazing to hear so many different responses to the prompt. Pippa
That was fabulous! You are a great speaker and I really enjoyed the writing. Well done! Lori
Congratulations, Julie on a great session today! It was entertaining and moving to hear other people's responses to the themes. I think we all learnt new things. Helen
