what I do
* * *
I have been teaching creative writing for ten years, working with adults old and young, teenagers and younger school children. I absolutely love it! There's no better feeling than helping people find the way to their words.
COLLAGE WRITING ROOM
I am delighted to be part of the fantastic team at the Collage Writing Room. I run the Prioritise Your Writing Project course and facilitate Feedback Fridays for CWR students. I also run workshops and mentor writers working to complete their first manuscripts.
WORKSHOPS AND COURSES
*** Ghostmapping - creative workshops for teenagers in collaboration with local artists and photographers.
*** My Manifesto - a workshop for times of transition.
*** Human Rights speechwriting with Camden teens.
*** Why Writers Don't Write
*** Life Writing

I help 15 and 16 year olds get the most out of their GCSE English Language and Literature.
COPYWRITING AND EDITING
I also write and edit. During 2020 I edited all the content for Brunel University London's website.

I have published short stories and poems and am currently editing a novel.
