Hey all,

I was just considering my sixth-form creative writing teacher. I never had him for English, only those free-time classes but I feel that without him I'd probably never have made it to the point I'm at today. I even dropped him an email earlier today to thank him for his help and encouragement. All it took was him reading over my writing and saying that I had promise for me to keep working at the craft which, as we all know, is how anyone improves upon anything they do.

Does anyone else have a particular figure who got them in to writing or has helped shape the way you see our art?
