Need a speaker, facilitator or workshop leader who is knowledgeable in writing practice, performance, devised theatre or communication at your university, business, secondary school or theatre group?
I am a creative writing tutor at City Lit College, University of London.
I am also a visiting lecturer and module facilitator at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.
Recently I led a workshop at Royal Holloway University in Audition Technique. I was also personally requested by the workshop attendees to return to Cambridge House to lead a workshop in performance and communication.
Mostly, I love to work with university students on creative undergraduate and postgraduate courses, melding my love for theory and practice. These sessions are often on playwriting, with a particular focus on how to ‘marry’ devised and written work — especially on how the meditative writing practice can learn from the instinctive devised process. I was a visiting tutor within the creative writing department at Royal Holloway, teaching on the Playwriting module for first years.
I also teach devised theatre with young adults at Bodens Performing Arts College. Over the years I’ve worked as a Drama Practitioner for several youth theatre companies and programmes, such as Company 3, Haringey Shed Theatre, Smile Theatre Company and NCS The Challenge. I frequently run workshops in spoken word, some notable companies including WAC Arts and The Transformation Trust.
