I’m a children’s writer and writing tutor.

I run kids’ writing workshops in which I help children invent their own monsters, explore alternative universes, do a lucky dip for story ingredients, and hunt for the most daring descriptions possible.

I also do individual tutoring for children aged six to sixteen. Whether in a group session or in one-to-one tuition, I focus on encouraging creativity, teaching new writing techniques, boosting confidence and having fun.

My son has always complained and struggled with creative writing for school, but he absolutely loved your ‘Mysterious Maps’ workshop this summer. After a few hours with you he couldn’t stop talking about the worlds he was creating, and how thrilling writing now seemed. You transformed writing from something that was a chore into something that is an art.
