I’ve been teaching creative writing since 2013. It’s one of the things I love about being a writer. It doesn’t feel like ‘teaching’ but like helping others find their voice and bring their stories into the world, whatever their age and writing experience. I teach individuals and groups, teenagers and septuagenarians, beginners and BA and MA classes…

If you’re looking for time and space to focus on your writing, my next writing retreats will run in May in magical Flüeli-Ranft and in September in the spectacular Bernese Oberland. For details and bookings, click here.

My one-day workshops are held at the wonderful Literaturhaus Zentralschweiz:

  • 3 December 2022: on characterisation
  • 14 January 2023: on story structure and plot development
  • 18 March 2023: on sense of place

Click here for details and to reserve your place. Based in the historic Rosenburg in beautiful Stans, Lit.Z is Central Switzerland’s literature hub, offering a lively, high-calibre programme in the cantons of Lucerne, Nidwalden, Obwalden, Schwyz, Uri and Zug.

Or, if you’re looking for one-to-one creative-writing tuition, in person or online, feel free to contact me here. I also welcome approaches by writing groups.
