Welcome to my website!

I’ve combined my journalistic background, a love of literature and recent online teaching experience to present a series of online writing courses. The pilot sessions were a great success – so this is the real thing. The courses come live and direct on Zoom and, when you book up, you’ll join a class of between 5 and 10 people. Each lesson has a theme with discussion, and there’s 25 mins’ writing time and a chance to share your work with your fellow students. There’s no pressure to read out, but it’s very likely that your confidence will grow. Enrolment for the autumn term is open now – so please don’t stay away – book up today!
