Here’s an updated list of my upcoming workshops and courses:

Time to Write at Koru

I’m happy to be starting some relaxed Sunday morning writing workshops in the lovely surroundings of Koru Peaceful Pizza (Salters Road, Gosforth).

Jesmond Library Writing Residency

I’m almost coming to the end of my writing residency at Jesmond Library and I’m currently working to produce an anthology of writing about libraries as part of the residency which will be launched at an event on 4 April (6pm-8pm). Tickets are free but you need to book a place by emailing events@jesmondlibrary.org

Gather Online Writing Group

If you’re not near Newcastle, I have a monthly online writing group which meets on the first Thursday of the month between 6.30pm-8.30pm. Sessions cost £15 each and it’s fine to come along to occasional sessions or if you haven’t been before. 2024 sessions will be on 11 April, 2 May, 6 June, 4 July, 5 September, 3 October, 7 November and 5 December and you can book your place on Eventbrite. You can also book at least three sessions for £10 each by emailing me to arrange.
