Farewell Fitzwilliams – Blog 191 – by Ms Paige Turner
Dear Creative Inkers,
I meant to do a speech at the Farewell Creative Ink Classes on Tuesday 22nd May at the Fitzwilliams Centre, Beaconsfield. But events or my emotion overtook me. I was going to say lots of things to give closure to my eighteen years of Creative Ink classes at the Fitzwilliams Centre and the twelve years before that at the Beaconsfield Adult Learning.
My last class’s theme was ‘Ending with Beginnings’ so let me simply say what AA Milne has said before me. ‘Can’t we go back to page one and do it again?’
And huge thanks for the flowers and incredibly generous Cliveden voucher. How fitting that Fiona Gibbs should go to collect it last Saturday and see a duchess in the making! And I felt like Meghan Markle for the day on Tuesday.

Creative Ink for Writers continues …
Editing, Proof Reading, Assessments and One to One consultations.
Or hire me for Creative Writing Workshops. (If you would like to be added to the evening workshops organised by Catherine Klyhn in Amersham then please email me.)
Or I can do a reading of ‘Red Lipstick & Revelations’ for you and if you haven’t bought a book then here’s the link: http://www.indigodreams.co.uk/jan-moran-neil/4593516523
Or I am at Gerrards Cross Library Prize Giving reading this Saturday at midday.

    The thing about a great ending is remembering where it all began: when was the moment you knew you had it in you to be a writer? I suspect that for many of your proteges it was their first encounter with your passion and enthusiasm during a class or workshop; the feeling of being swapped by the tide of ideas and ambitions. At that moment their storyteller’s dream was born and their inertia gave way under the weight of what now seemed possible. It’s a rare gift you have, glad to see it is still alive and knocking on the door of opportunity.

    I’m glad you did not end it before I began
    It is said that it is never too late so here’s to a late developer hoping to blossom using the seeds that have been sown in Beaconsfield
    My personal journey through this period of learning has been fraught with many challenges but attending this last eighteen months has felt like a huge hug in the middle of all the madness
