My novel Shop Front is a story of shelf-stacking, friendship and knife crime, and my short fiction tends to focus on nature, horror, and violence. I also founded the literary magazine Octavius, and have experience proof reading and editing.
My sessions typically focus on providing prose inspiration through music and images but can be tailored to any requirement and for any age range from 12 years+. I am also a qualified English teacher and have experience working with EAL and ASN individuals, as well as delivering CLPL/CPD sessions.
