in general

My passion is for community, literature, language, visual arts, sculpture, poetry and the creative word. I explore and offer other supporting skills; commissioned writing, storytelling, theatre, environmental sculpture and artwork.

I invent projects to suit to fit all kinds of themes;

Creative Writing sessions for children, youth groups and adults

Drama and performance workshops (in the round)

Pop up poet - working in a festival scenario, offering visitors (professional) commissioned poems

Sculpture and visual arts projects - large scale and colourful

Long term projects for all kinds of groups

Soap opera sessions - developing characters, spreading gossip and letting the tension unfold - can be based in the present day or in a period of history.

I’ve invented resources: Giant Scrabble, Poetry Dominoes, Soap Opera sessions, Poetry Portraits, Poetry Bunting, Poetry Beach, Gi-normous books, Walk on board games, coal-sculpture, poetry dominoes and book singing.

My skills have also been used for community consultancy and for copy editing sessions.

I also read and perform my own work with fun, vigour and aplomb (not a plum).

Price for a half day session is £120 plus expenses.
