As an author and creative writing tutor I’m available for literary festivals, book panels, speaking engagements, library visits, school visits and creative writing workshops.

I’m a qualified adult education tutor and have taught creative writing workshops to students from 8 to 82! I can offer a wide range of creative writing workshops or can also devise new workshops to fit your brief.

I’ve also taught schoolchildren for the National Academy of Writing and as part of the Children’s Express journalism in schools project. I’ve visited a number of schools, both primary and secondary to speak in assemblies, read to children and run creative writing workshops.

Please do get in touch with me via to discuss your requirements. Please also understand that, like all authors, this is my job and I need to charge fees for all events/workshops in order to make a living. I live in West Yorkshire so most of my visits/workshops are in the north of England or the Midlands but if I can get to you by train and you’re happy to pay expenses I can travel further afield!
