I absolutely love tutoring and mentoring and find it the greatest honour to work with other people and help them wrestle their stories on to the page.
I especially love residential courses where there is plenty of time to get into everything in depth and for much growth to happen in a supportive and nurturing atmosphere.
Obviously, Corona has put a bit of a kibosh on things but here’s what I still have coming up:
Curtis Brown Creative online memoir writing course. This is a six-week online course that runs two or three times a year. Please contact CBC for information.
Curtis Brown Creative Writing Your Memoir. This is a three month course that runs from September 20th 2021 to January 3rd 2022. Apply by 1st August 2021. They also have a scholarship programme ‘The Breakthrough Writers Programme‘ which is a new outreach initiative offering fully funded courses to under-represented writers.
Garsdale Retreat – Memoir/Life Writing: Have You Got a Story to Tell?
How do we write about the self? How do we make sense of the glorious mess of life and tame it into a book? What about writing about real people? Do we always have to tell the truth? This stimulating, encouraging and friendly week will address all these questions and offer tools and techniques to help you start turning your life events into a narrative. Suitable for all levels, whether you are a complete beginner or already have a body of work.
Arvon creative writing course at Lumb Bank in November 2021.
I will do a residential course and a retreat at Kestle Barton in Cornwall as soon as we are allowed to move around again.
I can do bespoke workshops for corporate groups or friends. I have a small amount of capacity for one on one clients. Do get in touch via the contact button with any queries.
