Wow, what an amazing day we had with Maz and that's just the teachers! Her fun filled creative writing workshops, got our children enthusiastic to write and taught them all that we all have amazing imaginations, we just need to open them!
After launching our book week with a whole school assembly, she captivated every child in the room and inspired them to write in year group workshops. Little did they know that they were learning story writing techniques that will stay with them forever. The stories they produced following her workshops are amazing. We wish we could have her everyday! Laura Losada – Alma Park Primary School
You are amazing! We are all buzzing about your visit today. Your sense of fun and passion for what you do is truly inspiring. Please come again! - Felicity Griffiths - Sherborne Prep School
Maz is one of the most dynamic, passionate and hardworking educators I’ve come across. Not only do her books excite avid readers and reluctant readers alike, her school events teach new writing structures, introduce students to the joy of reading and writing, and are original, entertaining and inspiring. - Mel Taylor-Bessent, Director of Authorfy and Little Star Writing
