Teaching

Autumn term masterclasses with Words Away at London Bridge Hive:

* 29 September 2018: The Craft of Plotting

* 24 November 2018: The Craft of Voice

We’re planning further masterclasses for spring and summer 2019 (perhaps: prose style; character and setting; writing scenes; revising and self-editing). The idea: helping writing to build their own programme of studies in creative writing.

 

If you are interested in working with me as a teacher:

I lead workshops, courses, and talks on a variety of topics about writing and publishing, including:

The Four Elements of Creativity
Plotting
Voice & Tone
Prose Style
Showing & Telling & Storytelling: The Craft of Narrating
Revising and Self-Editing
Reading As A Writer
Writing A Novel
Writing Short Stories
Flash Fiction
Writing Memoirs
How To Find An Agent
Publishing For Writers

I can tailor classes for, e.g., hour-long-seminars, afternoon- or day-long masterclasses, or ongoing workshops. I also hope to offer specific courses online in the near future, as well as a more structured programme of mentoring.

If you are interested in working with me individually or, e.g., inviting me to speak at your writing group, send me an email with details of what you are looking for.

I also regularly lead masterclasses and book doctor with Words Away and at various writing events.
