Tutor at Kilve Court and most recently Somerset Skills & Learning BA/MA Writing Books for Young People. From Somerset

Methodology

I usually teach my subject using a title for every class, for example. Lesson One: Characters. Lesson Two: Setting. Lesson Three: Voice. I have many handouts and the subject is broken up for critiquing prose. So if I were teaching the Writing A Children's Novel course, I would set a pupil a writing exercise or they would write a piece of their novel, and everyone would send their work to each other to be critiqued and discussed for the next class

Background

I studied for a (BA) Hons. Creative Writing degree and (MA) Writing for Young People at Bath Spa University, gaining representation from Clare Wallace at Darley Anderson.
As a tutor of Creative Writing, I teach at Kilve Court Residential Education Centre for gifted and talented children, and Somerset Skills and Learning tutoring adults on the Writing Books for Children course. I live with my husband and two young children in the countryside.
