Alison has been tutoring in workshops since the end of 2014 - over 65 of them in fact. We're always very excited when Alison signs up to tutor because she brings the most incredible patience, empathy and curiosity to the role.
Sometimes we're not even entirely sure who is the tutor and who is the student, her wide-eyed wonder is so child-like and wondrous that it's impossible for her students not to get caught up in their own story to the extent that she is.
Most recently Alison has been helping out with the year-long novella workshop, and her insightful comments and unwavering support for the high school students during what is proving to be a very boundary-pushing series for many of them is stupendous. Alison, thanks so much for all you do here.
