Of courses

I’ve been having a lot of fun with creative writing workshops recently. I spent yesterday evening with the MA Writing students at Nottingham Trent University and last week, wrapped up a five week course at Nottingham Women’s Centre, which I was running alongside the lovely Shreya Sen Handley as part of the These Seven project.

I love workshops. I love playing with different ideas and images and props. I love that moment when I look across a room to see people lost in their writing – and most of all I love hearing the fascinating, diverse and often brilliant pieces these writers produce.

And there’s more to come! This Saturday, I begin an ‘Inspiring Short Stories’ course at Nottingham’s Waterstones for Writing East Midlands. You can find full details here –


Come along, if you fancy. You never know, you might end up loving workshops too 🙂
