Courses and workshops


I can offer individual workshops or an 8 week course. Past experience includes teaching at Hughes Hall Cambridge for a summer programme.

Courses consist of seminars that include taught and practical activities. As a guide, they cover the following areas:

  • Getting started – ideas for how to begin
  • Character – creating round not flat characters
  • Setting – how to create a strong setting
  • Showing not telling
  • Dialogue –how to create convincing dialogue for your characters
  • Plot – How to extract a plot from a story
  • Point of View – which is best, first, third person or the omniscient narrator?
  • Voice – who is telling the story?
  • Editing and redrafting

Rates on request.
