workshops

I am available for poetry and creative writing workshops, with children, young people or adults. I have a lot of experience in planning an delivering workshops designed especially for adults with a learning disability, and also for children with low literacy.

I also facilitate sensory workshops and sensory stories for people with PMLD.

Through out 2014 – 2016 I worked on brilliant projects such as:

Word in the West
Raise the Roof and Kiss the Sky
Poetry in Shops (Creative Somerset)

Youth Poets Vs MCs

as well as delivering one-off bespoke workshops and short courses in poetry, writing and performance skills in schools, colleges, youth groups, and in a community setting all over the South West and South East.

In 2013 and 2014 I worked as a spoken word artist / workshop facilitator for Somerset-wide project Word/Play with excellent south west arts organisation Take Art.

I worked as a Poet Coach on Apples and Snakes’ Shake the Dust project in 2012 (the biggest youth poetry slam the UK has ever seen). There’s a great video about it here.

I have four years’ previous experience of working in primary schools as an LSA, and have training in delivering literacy and reading interventions such as Letters and Sounds, Rapid Reading, Read Write Inc. and Better Reading Partners. As such, I feel comfortable in liasing with teachers to plan poetry workshops which support your literacy targets.

I also have ten years’ experience of working with Young Adults with Learning Disabilities and Autistic Spectrum Disorders, in a community, educational, and residential setting.
