Speak Out is a warm and inviting environment, at Speak Out my writing has flourished, and I feel I have gained both confidence in my writing and myself. It is very enduring to learn the process of making a magazine and to witness the final product.”
Speak Out has been a brilliant place for me to explore my creativity and improve skills. I have met new people, built new relationships and also gained experiences such as being on an interview panel that I had never had the opportunity to do before.
