I regularly give talks on writing in the UK and in Europe. I offer writing workshops, mentoring, and promote literature, reading and creative writing through our writing community at University of Suffolk and in the wider community. I make worthwhile and meaningful connections between the craft of writing and the importance of storytelling skills in business and for personal well-being. I judge literary competitions and develop creative writing projects for exhibitions and publishing.
