Everyone has a unique creative voice. Through author visits, writing workshops and development education, my aim is to unlock creative confidence and to build resilience and wellbeing, especially in those who feel overlooked or excluded in any way. See Edges-of-Hope.
I love working with children and adults in both formal education and nonformal groups such as refugees, families in direct provision, youth clubs and children in hospital. I’m open to travelling anywhere in Ireland and overseas; please do get in touch.
I’m the Writer in Residence at OLHS school, Crumlin Hospital: www.olhs.ie
I’ve completed the Events for All Training run by Children’s Books Ireland https://childrensbooksireland.ie, which equips facilitators to work with diverse groups of children including those with autism.
I run workshops for children and adults
Primary schools, libraries & book festivals
Through author visits and creative writing workshops, I aim to foster wellbeing, confidence, resilience, creativity, problem-solving, literacy, inclusion, diversity, global education … and fun!
Working with children, young people and adults in direct provision, youth groups and hospitals, museums, prison etc., these workshops build creative confidence, literacy, resilience and self-esteem. They celebrate diversity and inclusion in a spirit of – you guessed it – fun!
