Ms Vyk's Salon

Ms Vyk Is the teacher we all wished we'd had who inspired our our love of literature and learning.
The name comes from the background of our initial contributor who wrote diaries from the age of 10,
took creative writing later in life and wrote so well that she was given this nickname by her teacher.
