I run creative writing workshops for adults, community groups and organisations.

I no longer run workshops for schools but I can recommend some excellent workshop facilitators!

I am a credited Royal Literary Fellow Consultant and I run training sessions for undergraduates, post grads, early career researchers and academic staff. More information here.
I also do private mentoring. Do you need help getting your poetry collection together? Or getting your manuscript ready to send to agents? Or do you just want a chat about your latest creative ideas and possibilities? Please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are some quotes:
'I'm not a poet who has always written, or a poet who has passed through academic education. I started to write poetry in my forties. Mentoring with Lucy has given my confidence a huge boost, increased self-belief in my voice, and skilled up my writing and editing skills.
Like many writers I had a bunch of poems I wanted to use for a poetry collection but I realised I had several gaps which needed more poems.
After my first mentoring session, I wrote with more purpose and during our monthly sessions my rough manuscript felt more cohesive, the narrative arc more interesting and clearer and I began to see my collection as a whole. My collection is now finished, polished and published.'
Helen Sheppard. Poet.
'Lucy made my work shine. She helped me shape the manuscript prior to publication. Lucy was supportive, responsive and forensically insightful. This made me feel much more confident when it came to submit the final manuscript. The focus of our work together was to make themes of the collection more accessible to readers, and I believe made the collection much stronger and more enjoyable. I learned a great deal from Lucy's approach and her close reading of my poems. She was reliable and responsive. The mentorship was excellent value, and highly enjoyable as Lucy is a lovely person, very engaging as well as incredibly knowledgeable.'
Pauline Sewards. Poet.
