Judith Allnatt’s experience as an accomplished author of four exquisitely written novels has benefited a generation of writers who have attended her Master Courses, workshops and lectures at the Winchester Writers’ Conference and at the Hampshire Writers’ Society meetings.
Quietly, confidently, kindly, she supports ’emerging’ writers with advice that includes the need for diligent research, the importance of fully developed characters and a sound structure that will attract even the most demanding agents and editors.Barbara Large MBE
We just love working with Judith Allnatt. She’s kind, thoughtful, and has a natural humility that hides acres of knowledge and experience.
Whether she’s teaching a large group, or mentoring one-to- one; leading a large discussion or contributing to a small panel; Chairing a Conference or dreaming up engaging programming ideas, Judith is one of our ‘go to’ people.Henderson Mullin
Judith is an outstanding communicator practised in running inspirational public workshops with unforgettable impact, joyous learning and insight into the craft of creative writing. She listens deeply, responds with warmth and is wonderfully encouraging. She is unique in applying the same creative energy that fuels her own writing to the challenges brought by students, in order to break through into a world of imaginative solutions.
As a speaker, Judith holds any audience spellbound, reads with eloquence and takes questions with grace and clarity. The extent of her research for each novel shines through.Grace Kempster OBE
