Creative Writing Courses

Running a Writing Group: All you need to know to Succeed and Prosper.

With my backgrounds in counselling and teaching creative writing, I try to provide a bridge between the two, helping you to gain confidence and skills to start your own writing group. I have been a relationship counsellor and supervisor with Relate since 1994 and taught creative writing to BA level at Bath Spa University for six years after taking my MA there. I’ve written several non fiction books, a graphic novel and several radio plays and I’m a Director of Lapidus International.

Teaching, Support and Fun

Over the weekend we shall cover preparation, promoting and providing for a group of writers for wellbeing. We will look at icebreakers, popular lessons, troubleshooting, dealing with strong emotions, feedback and creating fun and meaningful sessions. Everyone will have the chance to lead a mini-teachin and get supportive feedback. It will be a fun and entertaining weekend with loads of ideas for creative teaching.
