I am a poet with interests across the range of poetic styles, from slam to sonnet. My work has been widely published and won prestigious prizes.
I want more people to read, write and recite poems. I offer:
- poetry readings of my own work
- writing workshops for groups of students
- individual feedback and coaching
I am happy to work with all ages, although poetry for younger groups can often be led successfully by school teaching staff. Year 7 students upwards is the age range particularly suited for my work. My input as a practicing and published poet will be more important for those pursuing an Arts Award, creative writing A level students, or those considering creative writing courses at university. I am a member of the National Association for Writers in Education.
