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 

*** Writing for Mothers 

*** An Introduction to Creative Writing 

TUTORING

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.
