I am an award-winning writer, education consultant and yoga teacher.
My current projects include working on the latest draft of a novel, writing and editing children's stories for the charity onebillion and running the popular Bristol-based creative writing workshop, WriteClub.
My writing has appeared in a variety of publications, including Mslexia magazine, The Guardian, Project Calm magazine and HuffPost. My creative work has been recognised in various writing prizes and awards, including The Bridport Prize, the Bath Short Story Award and the 2015 Janklow & Nesbit Award. (More about this on my writing page.)
As an experienced English and Drama teacher, workshop facilitator and NLP Master Practitioner, I'm able to tailor writing and education sessions to suit your group. In the past I have worked with trainee teachers at various universities, with heads of departments at schools and with young people. I also run writing and yoga retreats - including, Unravel Your Own Myth, a retreat for delving deep into personal stories that was hosted by 42 Acres in Somerset in Jan 2018. I have recently run workshops to facilitate biography writing for artists at Spike Print Studio in Bristol and coordinate the learning and CPD sessions for Poetry By Heart.
I am also available for education writing and consultancy and work regularly with BBC Bitesize, BBC Teach, Poetry By Heart and York Notes, amongst others. (For more details about my education work, click here.)
