¶ Pat Sumner BA (Hons), Dip RSA, PGCE:
An experienced writer, editor and proofreader at ‘Cilan’, I enjoy helping others to develop and improve their writing and to prepare their copy for publication.
I also love to write myself and I have had poetry, plays, educational resources and children’s stories published (please see my ‘Publications’ page for further details).
An English Literature and Philosophy graduate, I previously worked as a teacher, specialising in English.
¶ Words can motivate and inspire us; they can change us from within. They’re not just symbols of communication; they’re images and ideas. They can conjure up cities, rivers and mountains, universes and atoms, triumphs, fears and dreams. And some words – perhaps the lines of a poem or speech – can stay with us forever. That’s the power of words.
