    Dear Ms. Wong,
    I am one of the students who were in the class you spoke to when you came to Island School. Thank you for coming, I learnt a lot about creativity and different inspirations for writing about different stories or poems, but I felt that the most interesting thing we did was the automatic writing exercise where we got to just bring out our creativity.

    Thank you for coming,
    Pierce Au
    Island School Student

    Dear Ms Wong,

    I am researching about you for an English project. May you please tell about your life and what inspired you to write them?

    From Sarah
