WRITING WORKSHOPS

Cherry Blossom
 

CORONA UPDATE:

My workshops are on hold during the Covid-19 virus crisis. I will be running 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 recently been asked to run some writing workshops at Clifton Library in Bristol.  Do have a look here at what I'm going to do, and book a ticket if you'd like to flex your writing muscles! 


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. 

Workshops coming up in Bath:​

  • Saturday April 18th: Follow Up 
    This workshop is a chance for writers to bring a piece that they’ve been working on to share and to receive feedback.  The piece you bring can be inspired by a workshop, or a piece you are writing independently.  The max word count for the piece of writing is 2,000 words, mainly so that there is time to give full feedback to each participant.  This workshop is £11 – the extra £1 is for the printing costs. Numbers are strictly limited for this workshop, so book early to avoid disappointment.  Book Here.



Editorial Services:

  • 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. 

Please get in touch if you are interested in either of these services.  

I am proud to be an Arts Mentor for Koestler Arts.

WHAT THE WRITERS THOUGHT

I ran a workshop recently which looked at story structure and narrative.  It was a wonderfully productive and creative morning, with some fantastic pieces of writing emerging. Here are some of the responses from the writers who came along: ‘Inspiring and engaging’, ‘SO helpful’, ‘Friendly feedback’, ‘I liked the mixture of tips, facts and writing exercises’, ‘Fun’, ‘Loved it’.

After a recent ‘Writing for Performance’ workshop the writers said: “I thoroughly enjoyed the small group and how supportive it felt.”  “Totally inspiring!”  “Supportive, convivial atmosphere.”  “Brilliant.  Well constructed.  Interesting and informative.  Well executed”  “Really helpful”  “Loved it – loved it all!”
