Playing With Words

Schools Work

Since graduating and turning full-time, I have given workshops in schools all around the UK, USA, China, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Oman, Dubai, Finland, Switzerland, Hungary and more. This involves both performances and getting students to write and share their own poetry, as well as organising slams between schools. I mostly work with secondary schools but have led workshops for all ages - It's one of my favourite things to do as I remember the impact writing had on me when I was in school. Bookings can be made through Author's Abroad.

I realised when making this page of the website that taking photos in schools is generally frowned upon but I did manage to find this video from when I was relatively new to the whole workshop thing !
