Wondering whether to do
a masterclass or workshop on writing with Valerie?
Here’s what some previous attendees had to say ...

Feedback from ACT Writers; Centre Masterclass, May 2015

Thank you, it was a very informative weekend.

Great workshop with good structure and expertise from Valerie

Valerie is incredibly generous and informative.

Thank you so much for helping me improve and polish "Slippage" - it's at a whole other level thanks to your input. - Karina Coldrick, outgoing Valerie Parv Award winner

Thank you very much for the 2 day writer’s workshop you conducted at the ACT Writers’ Centre (How to write a page-turning novel). I took a lot in and it has provided me with much food for thought on writing and where I could go with it. You are an engaging speaker and I appreciate and value the generosity and passion you put into it. Susan T.

Valerie…reminded me that it’s all do-able. [Online] Valerie…was able to feed the information and take questions in an excellent pacing for everyone to absorb, keep up and ask questions along the way. The fact she has successfully published so many books makes her a great source of info for wanna-be’s. Not being rude but often in online conferencess (Oz and O’seas) you get regurgitated material presented by people who haven’t been as successful… as Valerie Parv.
Delegates’ feedback, Claytons Online Conference

Valerie is very open and friendly. She was happy to share her experiences and offer advice.
Did the workshop meet your expectations? most definitely!

Delegate, Katharine Susannah Prichard Writers Centre, WA.

This interactive workshop explored ways to engage the audience and present a workshop people will remember…I’m already using these techniques to prepare a possible online workshop and workshop for next year’s national conference.

I enjoyed your workshop. It was fun and informative and recharged my enthusiasm You have a special knack of making everyone feel involved and able to contribute. I am sure everyone else enjoyed it as much as I did. I have enjoyed workshops with you in the past and look forward to future events.
