Poetry and Creative Writing Workshops (learn how to, and get better at, writing creatively)

I'm a self published poet and short-story writer with a Bachelor of Arts in English with Creative Writing, plus a proven track record of tutoring students in English and regularly performing my poems.

Creative writing, especially poetry, can be a difficult space to access without the right tools, atmosphere and feedback. But with these tools, and regular practice, you can be a more confident and more varied writer, in whatever field you're working in (or would like to work in).

I've found that writing habitually is a therapeutic experience, mentally and spiritually, as well as a good opportunity to connect and share with people.
