WORKSHOPS/READINGS

I am an experienced creative writing workshop leader able to offer inspiring, practical and informal workshops on many aspects of creative writing (life-writing, poetry and prose) to schools, writing/reading groups and community groups.

I am also available for poetry readings, commissions and collaborations.

Comments on my workshops

Feedback at workshop for Bridlington Writers’ Circle, March 2010

” I really enjoyed being stretched into new language and new ideas through existing poetry with a tutor without pretensions and oodles of humanity.”

“The workshop made/helped me write in a way I have not written before. Thank you.”

“The things I liked about the workshop were: the pace, the range, the variety and the challenge.”

Feedback from workshop at Huddersfield Literature festival Workshop, 2009

“I have never been to a writing workshop! hows that… (plenty on other subjects though) wasnt sure if I could write something to order / on demand as it were. But actually ideas came surprisingly freely (and all whilst sober!)”

“just wanted to say again how much I enjoyed today. Your approach to create evocative poetry is fantastic! I’d love to come to more of your workshops!”

“Thanks very much for yesterday’s workshop. I really liked the exploration of senses and realised I use images a lot – no doubt because I trained as a painter. I think the pace was great – gave lots of time and no need to read out if you felt you’d got nowhere at the time.”
