Courses and workshops
Some of the many workshops I run are listed below. If what you are looking for isn’t listed or you would like further information, please contact me.
Life writing workshop
Learn how to create a life narrative that gives others a window in to your life experiences. This workshop can be run over 3 x two-hour sessions or for a full day.
Exploring picture books
Workshops for older primary school-aged children explore what makes picture books work, while sessions for pre-school and early primary school children include readings, songs and other activities.
After the first draft
One the writing is done, how do you critically evaluate your own work? How do you know if it is going to cut it? In this workshop, we discuss how to review and edit your own work, the value of gaining different perspectives and other resources all writers need.
Dissecting the Frog*
In this workshop we look at how the best writers draw you in to their work, how they use language and how to apply these techniques to your own writing.
This workshop can be run over 3 x two-hour sessions or for a full day.
*No frogs are harmed in the making of this course.
Grammar and punctuation without tears
This fun and informative workshop is for anyone who writes and would like to improve their grammar and punctuation.
It can be run as a single or two-day workshop.
My approach in terms of ‘correct’ grammar and punctuation is that, while knowing and adhering to the rules is important, it is much more important to get your message across. So, if it’s matter of clarity over rules, I will always opt for clarity.
