I’m an experienced workshop facilitator.
I have run creative writing and drama workshops with vulnerable groups including adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse, NEETs, women who have experienced the justice system, refugees and adults and children with learning difficulties as well as working extensively with school, college and university groups and community groups in libraries.
Organisations I’ve run workshops and courses for include: The National Youth Theatre of Great Britain, Tate Britain, York St John University, The University of Huddersfield & Galle Literary Festival.
My workshops usually involve a combination of creative writing exercises and exercises and games to develop performance skills. Participants always write and perform a poem by the end of the workshop. I am happy to design bespoke workshops to suit your needs. I also offer editing and mentoring services for other writers.
I have tried and tested successful workshops on Writing Happiness and Joy, Poetry inspired by music and political poetry as well as a 6-session spoken word masterclass course.
