I am developing my experience as a creative writing workshop facilitator and can offer a range of courses from two hours to ten weeks. As the organiser of Ripley Writers’ Group for the past four years, I have been administering and planning the sessions, delivering the workshops, adapting, creating or overseeing the exercises and arranging for visiting writers to join us. I have also been empowering others within the group to develop and deliver exercises.
I was selected by Derbyshire County Council for their Derbyshire Residencies: writing ambitions programme to deliver creative writing sessions within the community while gaining support from a mentor. The support I received included tailored training and one-to-ones with writing specialists.
