Workshop Facilitator

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 taking a back seat in the group, it has flourished.

In 2016 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. The output for this Derbyshire County Council and Arts Council funding will be my chapbook, to be published in April 2021. Watch out for announcements on https://www.beardedbadgerpublishing.com
