"Just wanted to say thank you both for a great week-end! We loved meeting you and made friends with some fab people at the Festival. I must say Louise and Simon were the best hosts ever. They certainly make people feel like family"
"Once again thank you so much for a wonderfully organised event! I'm sorry I couldn't do the Sunday for you, but next year I would love to be involved a little more"
"Thank you so much for inviting me to the festival! I had such a wonderful time - it was a joy to be there. You looked after me so well. I'd be delighted to come back next year and do another workshop or reading should you wish - I have a new book coming out. I will certainly be coming back to be in the audience!"
"I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say, thanks so much for having me. I had a great time. Louise and Simon looked after me brilliantly at Barclay House, as did Ann Foweraker at my second session in Mama J's (where it was great to have such a good crowd)"
"Thanks so much for having me to Looe. The Festival was great, we had a smashing time, the Barclay House was lovely, Biggins was brilliant, and my classes went swimmingly. I hope you've heard good reports"

"What a truly great, amusing, exhausting(!), exhilarating, instructive 24 hours in wonderful company. A superb break from the garret, guttering candle and the dogs! Thank you both so much for organising it all as well as fixing my brief part - a serious privilege with great company"
2014 was an amazing success. Thank you to all our Authors, Sponsors and everyone who enjoyed the festival.
