One Day Courses at Big Smoke Writing Factory



The Spring season of writing workshops is really getting into full swing now, and I’m delighted to have a few one-day courses coming up at Big Smoke Writing Factory.

These are great taster sessions for anyone who would like to get into creative writing, but who may not be quite ready to commit to a full-length course.

In April, I’ll be teaching an Introduction to Creative Writing on Saturday 1st and Beginning to Write Poetry on Saturday 8th. These great value courses run from 11-4, and I can guarantee a lot of fun, and a lot of writing.

Troubadour Pics

Very belatedly sharing some pics from my reading at the Troubadour on the 25th January. I had a fantastic time. Having been part of a team who ran a poetry night (albeit for a short time) I recognise how difficult it can be to maintain an audience, but Anne-Marie and co. make it look so easy. There was a great crowd of around 100 in attendance, and the venue is intimate and welcoming. I was also delighted to have a chance to read my 2015 Troubadour Poetry Prize listed poem. I hope I’ll have a chance to go back soon.
