My live workshops are on hold during the Covid-19 virus crisis. I am running lots of online workshops and discussion groups. For all details click here.
In more normal times, I run short story workshops at my home in central Bath. The workshops are on Saturday mornings roughly once a month. Sometimes I run a whole day workshop at my house during which writers have the opportunity to explore an area of story, have the space to write, and receive feedback on a piece of previously submitted work.
I have run writing workshops for many years: at festivals and arts centres with Bristol short story collective Heads and Tales, for Julian House homeless charity in Bath, for the Refugee Centre in Bristol, for the University of the Third Age in Bath. I was very honoured recently to run a workshop at the inaugural Clifton Village Lit Fest, in Bristol. My background as a script editor for the BBC and Granada TV and my MA in Creative Writing from Bath Spa has given me experience of working with a wide range of writers.
All of the workshops aim to be supportive and encouraging to writers of short stories at all levels. I provide exercises which are stimulating and inspiring (hopefully!) in a warm, friendly atmosphere. All workshops run on Saturday mornings from 10.00-1.00pm. My Bath workshops cost £10. They can be booked via Eventbrite.

I have mentored a number of writers at various stages of their writing careers. I enjoy working on a one-to-one basis and would delighted to consider new mentees.
I can provide a written critique of a piece of writing with constructive suggestions for improvement.
