How did attending Ashley Hall shape you as a writer?

Hi Libby --
After years at schools where she was thought to be not quite bright and had a hard time making friends, Madeleine loved Ashley Hall. She was encouraged and supported by her teachers, found friends, and her writing blossomed. She wrote poetry and plays and fiction, and acted in school plays and edited the literary journal as well. An upcoming biography has a couple of chapters on her time at Ashley Hall. Check it out here:
Tesser well!
