Teaching Experience:

I am experienced in teaching formal creative writing courses as well as running creative writing workshops in a wide range of settings, including primary and secondary schools, colleges, prisons and community groups, using a range of techniques to inspire writing. I have developed materials for Barbican Education for use in primary schools and devised long-term projects in schools.

My years of teaching include working both in the UK and overseas, up to and including university level, in classrooms and privately. My students have been as young as six or as old as sixty. They have been of varying abilities and from hugely different backgrounds. I have taught individuals in their homes as well as small groups at colleges, in libraries and in community organizations.

Teaching Approach:

I am experienced in teaching formal creative writing courses as well as running creative writing workshops in a wide range of settings, including primary and secondary schools, colleges, prisons and community groups, using a range of techniques to inspire writing. I have developed materials for Barbican Education for use in primary schools and devised long-term projects in schools.

I enjoy tutoring and find it a hugely rewarding experience. I think that my enthusiasm as an educator imbues my tutees with an eagerness to make progress in their work whilst the fact that I am a published and award-winning writer inspires them towards achieving their writing goals.

I encourage students to be robust enough to put their work out into the world as soon as possible, to take a positive approach to critiques of their work and to persist in working towards their goals, whether those be widespread publication or simply to complete a satisfying body of work.
