Where I'm teaching in 2014

If you want to be taught by me, here's where you can find me outside the Birkbeck MA in 2014.


At Ty Newydd in Wales

Short Fiction: Got a Story?
19-24 May

Tutors: Jean McNeil and Julia Bell
Guest: James Friel

Everyone has a story – but not everyone can tell it. On this course learn how to turn your stories into prose, be that a short story, a novel or a piece of non-fiction. This is a course on narrative technique, how to write persuasively and engagingly from tutors at two of the top MA courses in the country. This course will suit all levels of experience and the students will emerge with a completed short story, or possibly the beginning of a longer project.



At the Hurst in Shropshire

GENRE: Starting to Write
Jun 16 - Jun 21
The Hurst

With Yemisi Blake

Are you stuck in a rut with your writing? Don’t know how to develop a piece of work from the initial inspiration? During this week, we will take you through the process of getting a piece of writing to jump off the page. We’ll look at examples and techniques. With our help, you will create and develop your own ideas.
