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

We all spoke very highly of your workshops afterwards, and Ricco thoroughly enjoyed himself. We’d certainly be keen to book again.

A big thank you to you; Maya had a great time every day of the workshop.

Thanks for Friday – Arielle had a great time and would love to do it again. She said it felt like it only lasted about 10 minutes, which I took to mean it flew by as she was having so much fun. I loved that her story revolved around not just trampolining, but specifically trampoline socks!

THIS FEBRUARY HALF-TERM I’m running a week of creative writing workshops for children aged 8-11, taking place from Monday 18th – Friday 22nd. We’ll be examining the world through a microscope, visiting alternative universes, doing a lucky dip for story ingredients, and hunting for the most daring descriptions possible. The sessions are about encouraging creativity, learning new writing techniques, boosting confidence and having fun. Book a place here.

*** I’m also running a one-off poetry workshop for an older age group (11-13 year olds) on Tuesday 19th Feb, 2-4pm. You can book for that here. ***
