I work as a Fellow of the Royal Literary Fund, helping university students to improve their writing. I also teach non-fiction courses at the Arvon Foundation and hold writing workshops for various organisations – from schools and festivals to businesses and community groups.
If you’re after more personalised mentoring, I offer one-to-one sessions for any writer at any stage through the Arvon Foundation. This could involve mapping out a plan for your book, revising a sprawling first draft or simply discussing the seed of an idea… Hit me up!
