I’ve been teaching creative writing since 2015 and have delivered courses and workshops online and in community centres, libraries, museums, galleries, day centres, and schools across North East England to inspire and support people to write. I’m particularly interested in helping people benefit from being creative in their everyday lives and my sessions are designed to be enjoyable as well as inspiring.
I’m a qualified adult education tutor, having gained a Level 3 Award in Education and Training (NCFE) in 2015. I have an enhanced DBS certificate and Public Liability Insurance and I’m a professional member of the National Association of Writers in Education. I’ve completed Emergency First Aid at Work and First Aid for Mental Health (Level 2) training and a six-week course in how to facilitate Writing for Wellbeing groups.
Please contact me if you’d like me to run a course or workshop or to talk or read at an event. You can find out about my upcoming courses and workshops on my news page. For more about my work in schools and with children and young people see my schools and young people page. I also offer a mentoring and critique service for anyone who would like one-to-one support with their writing.
