Creative writing

Supporting new writers in workshops and one-to-one

I always look for the good in the work I’m shown and offer specific, practical advice to help people realise their potential. I’m empathetic and open, because I understand that the private doubts of new writers can hinder them as much as any technical issue.

‘The whole way you shared your experience was very honest and motivating. It was a real pleasure listening to you.’ – Sophie C.

‘I found your honesty and clear drive really inspiring.’ – David M.

‘It was a fantastic visit which made a real impact on the quality of our students’ writing and motivation … we would love you to come back.’ – Peter M.

Previous work includes Wolsey Writers at New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich; Arvon, Lumb Bank; Suffolk One sixth form; University Campus Suffolk; Write Minds mental health group; and Prior Park College, Bath. I’m also an experienced judge: New Angle Prize for Literature; Flash Fiction at Suffolk New Academy; and Ip-Art Festival short story competition.
