Hugh McMillan's headshot

I am a well published poet and writer, anthologised and broadcast widely. I have worked with writers groups of all ages and backgrounds, including in schools, prisons and hospitals. I can facilitate workshops or projects which use writing as a way to unlock creativity and memory. I am an entertaining reader and performer of my work, also. I have performed at festivals in the UK and abroad. In 2017 I was writer in residence at the Harvard Summer School.
