“Kathryn Burnett’s “Beginners Guide to Screen-writing Workshop” was a fascinating and valuable learning experience for participants of the intensive two-day course recently held on the University of Waikato’s Tauranga campus; her vast knowledge of the screen industry, along with its requirements of the screenwriter, were effortlessly conveyed by her clear/dynamic tutoring style. Participants not only valued the generous manner in which Kathryn shared her knowledge, but they also felt encouraged to participate in the discussion times that were an integral part of the workshop. As an adult community education coordinator of many years, I would rate Kathryn Burnett as one of the most dynamic tutors I have ever seen. The evaluation forms from participants were full of praise for both the tutor and the relevance of her material; many told me personally that it was the best writing course that they had ever attended.” Nyree Sherlock – Adult Community Education Advisor, CCE, University of Waikato at Tauranga

Kathryn is also a working writer so she knows the many issues facing the writer. And her course was a hell of a lot of fun.” Michael Beran – Director/Writer
