Midge was my supervisor and the programme director during my time as a student in the MSt in Creative Writing at Cambridge University. Her teaching style is one that focuses entirely on the growth of her students, empowering us to discover the roots of what we are writing so that they may blossom on the page. She has been an incredibly helpful and inspirational mentor as I began my memoir, which started under her guidance long before it was found by a literary agent and signed onto a US book deal. Midge helped me to focus not just on the technical and structural aspects of writing my memoir, but also on the emotional, familial, historical, and even political aspects of the writing. She is an empathetic, thoughtful tutor who really understands the individuality of each student. I cannot recommend studying with Midge enough!
