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 founder and organiser of Ripley Writers’ Group from 2013 to 2017, I administered and planned most sessions, delivered the workshops, adapted and created exercises and arranged for visiting writers to join us and for members to facilitate the sessions. Since leaving the group, it has flourished.
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.
