Maureen Myant's headshot

I have worked as an educational psychologist, teacher and Open University associate lecturer and have wide experience of working with age groups from 5 to adults, delivering workshops, training and learning experiences in a wide variety of areas.

As a writer, I have experience of readings and talks concerning my own work. I have published two novels, The Search (historical fiction set in WWII) and The Confession (contemporary crime fiction) as well as a number of short stories. I am happy to work with schools, community groups etc to develop workshops for their own needs. Suggested topics include: editing; characterisation; story structure; point of view; setting etc.
