Testimonials

From a uniquely vibrant place, where ancient cultures coincide with one another and with our planet's future, comes this collection of poems: energetic, surprising, direct, subtle - in a word, moving. The volume brings together the fundamental art of poetry and the transforming spirit of youth.

"Moving Poetry" is an ambitious and heartening collection, sometimes funny, sometimes melancholy, invariably expert. It proves once again the value of encouraging young people to stretch their imaginations, and proves how great is the benefit to us all.

As said, I am looking for workshops and courses that will help my daughter Lorraine upgrade her creative writing skills and I am most ready to pass your workshop materials to my daughter's school

Like you, I was deeply moved by the feelings and images of Justin's little poem. Thank you once again for inspiring him, opening him up to the world of expression.

Anyway, let's keep in touch. I'm sure I'll need help from you when we have lessons on poems again in our school!

Thank you for inviting us to take part in the Moving Poetry Workshop. We, teachers and students, have learned a lot from Mr. Mahoney. The feedback from us all was highly positive.
