‘Hannah was a dedicated, conscientious student, who responded well to feedback and developed significantly over the two years. Throughout the course she made productive contributions to the learning environment that nurtured the work of other students as well as her own. She is a talented writer and I expect to hear more of her in the future.’

Mark McNay (MA Creative Writing tutor, OU) ???

‘I came across one of Hannah’s stories, ‘She Says We’ll Get There Soon She Says’, in The Best of CaféLit 8 anthology. I read it again, and again, and found something new in it each time.’

R. Arwel Jones (Cyngor Llyfrau Cymru, Welsh Books Council)

‘Hannah did a Drabble for my wife and I as a Valentine's gift. With minimal input from me Hannah caught the moment and put them down in less than 100 words so I could put them into a Valentine's card for my wife. The best personalised gift you could get for a loved one. We are totally blown away with this. It’s amazing and I would recommend you do the same. Thanks Hannah, you’re a star!’

John Lorenz

‘I highly recommend Hannah as a tutor. Her planning and sense of fun inspired my son to write more creatively and understand what he was required to do in GCSE English. He went on to enjoy creative writing as a hobby. Hannah is inspiring.’

‘Hannah Retallick's prose draws the reader straight in. She has a strong, consistent voice and her writing is empathetic, subtle and evocative. Definitely an author to watch!’

Amanda Huggins (Saboteur Award for Best Poetry Pamphlet 2020, Costa Short Story 2018-3rd prize)

‘I approached Hannah and asked her to mentor me as I revived and reinvigorated my blog. Hannah was concise, insightful, and offered practical solutions. This impacted directly on readership with views increasing by 30%. She sent prompts and offered timely encouragement as deadlines loomed. She knows her subject thoroughly and is a skilled and insightful co-writer – I cannot thank enough for her mentoring. The measurable speaks for itself; however, her patience and generosity as a co-writer and mentor go above and beyond. Diolch o Galon.’
