Would you like to work with a writing mentor, a coach who will give you one-to-one guidance and feedback on your work, AND offer advice on where to submit your poems/how to get published?

I am a creative writing tutor with 15 years’ experience and a Masters in Creative Writing.

I have five books in print and my sixth is forthcoming from Indigo Dreams in 2020

I have had poems published in journals and anthologies, which include Ambit, The North, New Walk Magazine, Amaryllis, Iota, Caduceus, Envoi, The Wenlock Anthology, Eyeflash, and The Museum of Light.

I have been described as ‘a poet who surely can do anything’ by The North and ‘a poet of quite remarkable gifts’ by Bernard O’Donoghue.

I can help you edit and develop your work and find homes for your poems when they are ready.

I can work with you face to face, or by email/telephone.

You can book a series of sessions or a single one to one. (To look at 3 poems).

If you’d like to hear more about how I can help you please email me at cheltpoetryfest@gmail.com

I offer standard and concessionary rates for the unwaged.
