I am developing my experience as a creative writing workshop facilitator and can offer a range of courses from two hours to ten weeks. As the founder – and organiser – of Ripley Writers’ Group from 2013 to 2017, I administered and planned most sessions, delivered the workshops, adapted and created exercises and arranged for visiting writers to join us and for members to facilitate the sessions. Since taking a back seat in the group, it has flourished.
In 2016 was selected by Derbyshire County Council for their Derbyshire Residencies: writing ambitions programme to deliver creative writing sessions within the community while gaining support from a mentor. The support I received included tailored training and one-to-ones with writing specialists and was part funded by the Arts Council.
