I’m available for speaking, readings, tutoring and broadcasting. Topics I’ve covered recently include:
- Becoming a writer, writing craft and methods
- Advanced writing and self-editing techniques
- How to get published and the writing business
- Self-publishing and how to do it well
- How to make ebooks
- Working with authors (for editors, publishers and libraries)
- Using social media.
Some of my credits:
I’ve taught Guardian masterclasses in writing craft and professional self-publishing. I have a professional course for ghostwriters (here).
I’ve co-hosted a show on Surrey Hills Radio called So You Want To Be A Writer (find the episodes here). I’ve spoken at literary lunches for The Oldie and Muddy Stilettos, taught writing workshops in Zurich and Venice and been interviewed by Jo Good on BBC Radio London. I’m a regular on Litopia’s Pop-Up Submissions show, critiquing writers’ manuscripts alongside literary agent Peter Cox.
I’ve spoken at the Society of Young Publishers about self-publishing. I’ve read excerpts of my novels at Brixon Bookjam. I’ve debated the value of ISBNs with Book Industry Communication (BIC). I’ve taught a mini-course in professional self-publishing at the Jericho Writers Festival. And I’ve taught attenders of Geek Lates how to write tiny short stories that will fit on a postcard.
I have a course on Udemy, a course on ghostwriting represented by publishing expert Jane Friedman, and I’ve been the special guest of Kobo Writing Life at the London Book Fair.
If you prefer a virtual me, I’m happy to drop into your reading club or writing group by Skype and I’ve done oodles of audio and video podcasts for the likes of The Creative Penn and Grub St Writers in Boston.
