  • “Lewis has proved himself to be a highly respected and much valued member of the team… is highly intuitive and one of his greatest qualities is his ability to communicate with anyone, regardless of their position or background. This has proved invaluable.”
     First Story 
  • “Lewis’s energy enabled him to build rapport with the students very quickly, his rule-free approach to writing enhanced their creativity. The workshops were fast paced and full of variety so the students were constantly engaged”
    East Cardiff Libraries


Teachers have said:

  • “From the moment he walked in and asked them to describe his jumper, to the end of the session when he received whoops and tears after performing a poem, Lewis had a striking and meaningful effect on our students.”
    Edith Johnson, Villiers High School
  • “Lewis has inspired me and I have taken on board some of his methods and activities to improve the services we offer to schools and community groups”
    Katherine Whittington, Librarian, East Cardiff Libraries
  • “It was a pleasure to watch Lewis work and the children in my class were excited about writing, he had them eating out of the palm of his hand.”
    Elaine Cheetham, Teacher, Willowbrook Primary School
  • “Lewis Buxton’s Creative Writing workshops provided our Sixth Form students with a fantastic opportunity to develop their skills in writing and performance. Lewis’ enthusiasm and love for literature is readily shared with the students he works with and students respond extremely well to his dynamic and innovative approach. Seeing the students step out of their comfort zones and perform their work was an absolute pleasure and we look forward to having Lewis back in to support with our Enrichment programme next academic year.”
    Harkirat Gata-Aura, Teacher, Mossbourne Community Academy.
