What I Offer
As both performance poet and writer of literary journalism/ creative non-fiction, I can offer day long workshops in either. These interactive sessions can be moulded to fit whole classrooms, or as enrichment for students who are particularly interested. It is my intention that by the end of any of these, both students and teachers would have a better understanding of the genre and would hopefully be fully charged to keep going!
