EVENTS & WORKSHOPS
I design and deliver artful interventions that bring people closer to themselves and one
another through the power of the written and the spoken word...
This includes workshops and residencies for writers and other artists, audio adventures for venues and festivals, and through my work with The Map, professional and leadership development for people and organisations. As a poet, podcaster and theatre practitioner I am especially interested in creating events, workshops and online encounters that undertake a vibrant exploration of voice on and off the page.
Over the years I have created work for a wide range of partners and settings including: The National Theatre, Ballet Black, Wise Words Festival, Ty Newydd, Latitude, Theatr Clwyd, Lapidus, Manchester University, New York University, Spread The Word.
To discuss a workshop or event drop me a line and we can create something unique for your setting.
“I discovered a whole aspect to my voice that I didn’t know I had"
“I’m taking away so many ideas and such rich material"
"This has simply been the best workshop I have ever attended"

On Voice - A lab session for writers to explore the interplay between the written and the spoken word in the writing process. Using recording work and rehearsal process to unlock new ways in to the sonic force of poetry.
In Exchange - A full day workshop drawing on the ideas at the heart of the Poetry Exchange as a resource for the writing process. We will experiment with poem as gift, exchange and conversation as a stimulus to new and unexpected words.
