Workshops and Mentoring

From one-off workshops to long-term programmes, I have experience facilitating creative writing tutorials and group activities for the University of Aberdeen, Into Film Scotland, Aberdeen City Council, The Barn (Woodend, Banchory) and various schools across Scotland. You can book me via Scottish Book Trusts Live Literature programme.

I also offer 1-1 mentoring for creatives looking to progress their careers and/or individual projects including work on artistic statements, CVs, finding opportunities, application writing and setting goals. I have offered this support through Creative Learning’s The Writers’ Room and Sustaining Life as a Creative programmes.
