My passion for working with other writers to develop creative work and ideas was ignited in my first year of university (Royal Holloway, University of London), as a member of the university’s Writers’ Circle – which I later, helped turn into an official university society, which was subsequently awarded the Student Union’s Best New Society Award.

I’ve now been running writing workshops for young & emerging writers for over 7 years, for CityRead, the Wordsworth Trust, New Writing North, New Writing Cumbria / Eden Arts, in schools, and online.

Starting in January 2017, I also publish a monthly writing prompt, for young as well as not-so-young writers.
