Since 2016 I’ve been a Lecturer in Creative Writing at the University of Manchester, teaching both undergraduate modules and modules on the MA Creative Writing programme. I have also taught previously on the MA Creative Writing Poetry programme at UEA. As a freelance tutor, I have taught poetry workshops for many arts and educational organisations including the Arvon Foundation, the Poetry School, Oxford University and Cambridge WordFest.
I offer some individual tutorials and mentoring by correspondence or in person to poets who are not complete beginners and are serious about improving further. Please contact me for further details about this kind of intensive work.
I have also worked extensively with teenagers and young people as a Poet-in-Residence at St Paul’s Girls’ School and South Hampstead High School, a tutor on schools Arvon courses, a mentor for young women poets for the Writing Squad, and a tutor on the Tower Poetry Summer School at Christ Church, Oxford.
