I have worked with many groups of people and in many environments. I teach a regular weekly class, have worked with a young writer’s group, taught on residential courses and led one-off workshops. I enjoy working with people as they discover the sort of writer they want to be, exploring their blocks and helping them to release their own flow of creativity. As a writing teacher I see myself as a motivator and enabler, helping people to find the tools they need and encouraging them to use them to reach their personal goals, whatever they may be.

I can offer workshops for adults or teens on:

  • Creative writing
  • All aspects of fiction writing
  • Walking and writing
  • Poetry
  • Creativity
  • The Artist’s Way

If you are interested in something specific, please contact me to arrange the workshop which suits you.

Some things people have said about my workshops:

The most helpful aspect of the course was Anna’s lively and informative teaching style and the excellent  material provided. I would not hesitate to do this course all over again. Thanks to Anna, I now write regularly  and have my own desk set up as a writing space where there was once a jumbled mess of clutter in the corner. Thank you Anna, your tuition has been life-changing.

I want to say thank you for running the novel writing course. It brought the idea of writing one down from the realms of fantasy to possibility.

We certainly enjoyed it – several people were saying afterwards that they’d love you to come again!

Having studied Creative Writing in University and community settings and at Arvon, I consider it to be the best tuition in this subject I have received yet.

I accessed parts of myself today that I didn’t even know were there.
