I have been teaching creative writing for many years - learning lots from my students in the process. I give lectures on the subject to Writers’ Circles, Writers’ Conferences, U3A groups, Women’s Institutes, etc., and judge writing competitions. I have also served as Chairperson on various Writers’ Circles and committees.


At present I am a member of Wessex Writers, a professional writers’ group who meet to discuss manuscripts, publishing, etc. I contribute to the Wessex Writers’ free monthly newsletter: The Voice, published each month as an e-magazine. It aims to promote communication between writers and readers. If you would like to become a subscriber or contribute a recommended read or an article contact 


I am  available to speak about writing at most events. Contact me at for details.
