Courses are usually five or six sessions, a couple of hours a week. Groups are small - about six people - so that there is time for everyone to share and discuss a piece of writing. One-day workshops typically run from around 10 to 4.30, with a break for lunch. I try to choose venues with inspirational surroundings - and a good café!



I could never draw, paint or express myself in pictures, but I love language.  Words are my colours.  I have no ambition to publish my work and one day I realised that there are others out there just like me.  So my mission is to encourage people who want to write, just for the sheer joy of it.  I have a degree in English and History and I am a qualified teacher so I have the skills and experience needed to help you learn.  I also love to sing - choral, rock, music theatre - and am much traveled in pursuit of my hobby.  I'm a volunteer for the Alzheimer's Society, helping and enjoying myself at their 'Singing for the Brain' groups.



Just Write courses have been running since 2010.  We cover a wide range of themes and a few favourites have emerged. Stories and poetry are always popular.  Words from Pictures is always inspirational and has been set in galleries, studios, exhibition spaces and libraries, where we’ve been inspired by postcard reproductions, or up close and personal with the originals.  Get It Written! is becoming a popular course, bringing together a range of styles and projects by writers, who find that a few deadlines and a group of interested listeners work wonders for their motivation.  Writing About Family attracted some keen family historians and inspired my newest course:  Writing Your Memories.  Our individual memories are a unique and valuable resource and we can explore them to find settings and characters for fiction, as well as memoirs to share.


Most courses have about six people, so there is time for everyone to share their work during the session. Sometimes it can be daunting to read your own words aloud, if you’re nervous or it’s an emotional piece. We’ll find ways to make it easier.


Those who enjoy writing understand how precious your work is to you. So we learn to respect our own and each other’s writing, and find ways to encourage and help one another.


You don’t have to prove anything to anyone. There are no exams, no portfolios, no expectations. There is only encouragement to write and share, and no detention if you don’t do your homework!
