A very helpful session. Peter was an engaging speaker and I will definitely put his advice into practice. Although it felt like hard work to read articles/submit articles beforehand, it was very useful on the day.

Good course length. I feel I have learnt things I can use straight away (not just in writing articles but writing generally). Very good idea to have specific articles to work on.
