  • A community of opportunity

    I came to these courses (Principles of Health & Medical Copywriting and How to Become a Freelance Health Writer) curious and hopeful. As I worked through the material I felt stretched and challenged, but always buoyant. That's because Michelle is such a great teacher, mentor and encourager. It's not just a course, but a community of opportunity - and a great one to be part of.

  • Highly recommended

    Principles of Health & Medical Copywriting gave me the fundamentals and courage to start my freelance health and medical copywriting career. Loads of useful targeted information including references, articles, and notes were provided. In addition, detailed homework pieces to get you thinking hard on your “how to” strategy. Loved it and would highly recommend.
