I am delighted to be offering creative writing workshops online and in the heart of Caversham to children aged 7-14.

The gorgeously creative space run by Made By Tamalia in Caversham will be our host again this year. 

I am holding a full day workshop on Tuesday 22nd February for writers looking for half term fun. It will be an immersive day of story telling and writing for children aged 7-11.  FULLY BOOKED please e-mail to be added to the waiting list. If there is enough interest I will look at booking the studio for a second day.

I have also booked more after school courses for the spring term. Details and booking for all of these can be found below. 

As well as in person courses, I am working with the wonderful folk at Author in Me again in 2022 to offer online creative writing classes. Booking for these are via the AIM website, you can click below for more information.


I will be starting two new 6 week courses on Tuesdays beginning 1st March at Creativ.Spaces studio in Caversham.

The cost of the 6 week course is £70 per child

3.30 - 4.30 for writers aged 7-11 - with a focus on writing for fun

4.40 - 5.40 for writers ages 8-10 - with a focus on structuring for the 11+ 

I am also offering online workshops for individuals or small groups. I have limited availability left for September so please do get in touch if you would like to book. You are welcome to put a group together as the cost reduces per child when the workshop is shared.

The emphasis of these workshops is very much on the CREATIVE and I fill each session I teach with fun as I truly believe this is the very best way to encourage children to release their imagination and become better writers.
