Poetry
I have a great deal of experience running writing workshops for adults. I have worked for the WEA in Derbyshire and in Sheffield, taught Creative Witing at Bretton Hall, and am now a part-time lecturer on the Experience of Writing course at Derby University. I recently took over the editorship, with Elizabeth Barrett, of STAPLE, a magazine with a long established reputation which publishes poetry and short fiction. I prefer working with adults, but will consider work with sixth form groups in schools or in Further Education.

Publications
Poems included in THE NERVE, the Book of Writing Women, Virago Press and in several anthologies and magazines ie - BEGINNINGS (The Housman Society anthology, 1999-2000), Writing Women, Staple, PN Review, New Welsh Review.
