I’ve run writing workshops in community venues across the north-east of England (including Sunderland Museum, The Word, The Laing Gallery, Spark Radio, Arts Centre Washington), and in more schools than you can shake a rolled up exercise book at.

I love designing new content for each group of participants. This means my workshops can be about anything from Nissan-inspired haiku to pan-dimensional library massacres to ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ games based on Kafka’s Metamorphosis (plus all the usual stuff, like character development, dialogue, and the Oxford comma). I can also deliver Arts Award (up to Silver level), if that’s something you’re into.

Currently, I lead a regular writing group at Back on the Map (in Hendon, Sunderland). If you’d like to come along, we’ll be meeting every other Tuesday afternoon, from 1 May to 24 July 2018.

If you’d like me to run some writing workshops for you, please get in touch.
