I’m a tutor for The Professional Writing Academy where I design and run online writing courses, mentor students through the novel writing process and provide feedback and guidance on their submitted work. Prior to this, I was a lecturer in creative writing at Falmouth University where I taught fiction and narrative non-fiction across various genres at undergraduate and postgraduate level.

I’m also a CELTA qualified English Language teacher and currently live in Sofia where I help students navigate modal verbs and various other grammatical oddities.

I’m very happy lecturing to a crowded room, holding writing workshops and developing online learning. If there’s anything you’d like me to get involved with, please contact me.
