First Story

I’m currently writer-in-residence at Coop Grange Academy, Bradford and The Holy Family school, Keighley for First Story, a wonderful organisation that places writers in schools to encourage young people with creative writing. Each residency culminates in the publication of an anthology of the students’ work.


Community Writing Projects

I’ve been Artistic Director and workshop leader for various community writing projects, creating plays and other products collaboratively with participants. These books were published as part of two such projects:
