Please do make Penelope Perfect into a TV series. But can you make sure it’s on free to air, because I don’t have Foxtel.

“Chrissie is a warm and approachable presenter who was extremely flexible throughout the entire process of planning the workshops through to their delivery. She adjusted the delivery easily between the three separate workshops done at the College in order to connect with the students at their age level. We have quite a few aspiring authors and Chrissie was able to give them valuable advice about getting started in the world of publishing fiction. I would highly recommend Chrissie as a presenter in the field of creative writing.”

— Andrea G-O,
Senior English Teacher and Year 8 Coordinator, Genesis Christian College, Brisbane

“The workshop was incredible; it is aiding in keeping my writing vision alive. I learnt to not give up on a character and to continue seeking inspiration for the direction of a plot. I’m very grateful for the time that she spent with us and the invaluable information we each received.

Thank you!”

“It was really interesting to get an insight into the process of writing a novel and to improve my creative writing skills. I look forward to applying what I learned at the workshop and becoming a better writer because of it.”

— Daniel (year 9 extension)

“Chrissie helped me to understand how to create an interesting character that people can relate to and that isn’t stereotypical. She also taught me about dialogue and how to show the characters personality through dialogue. It was very fun and I would love to have her back.”
