I am available to give workshops on creative writing, in addition to occasional talks on copyright, contracts, libel and other law relevant to writing.

My creative writing courses are offered via CLL University of York and elsewhere. I shall be leading a workshop on play-writing on Sat 18th Feb 2017 and one on Steampunk, alongside civil engineer, Carolyn Dougherty on 18 March 2017. Book on 01904 328473 or email lifelonglearning@york.ac.uk

I have been guest speaker at Caerleon residential writers' course and worked with various writers' groups and organistions . I have a teaching certificate and have taught legal and literary subjects, plus hold an MA in Creative Writing (Distinction awarded) from the prestigious Writing School at Manchester Met University, then tutored by Michael Schmidt of Carcanet Press. My first degree was in BA Hons English Literature and Language from Manchester University.

I have a special interest in Elizabeth Gaskell and am a long-standing member of the Gaskell Society, with various articles written for them e.g. on my dramatising 'North and South' for York's Festival of Ideas and the copyright background for Victorian novelists. http://gaskellsociety.co.uk
