Patron of Writing

I’m delighted to have become the first Patron of Writing for Writing Room, a fantastic, inclusive organisation that offers a range of creative writing courses.

I took a poetry course there back in 2014, at their original home in Wood Green. I was struggling to find time to write, between a PhD, job and a small child, and Writing Room gave me the space and incentive to prioritise my writing each week. Now they are online they offer courses and drop-in groups for writers at all stages of their writing journey, and their community has grown far and wide.

Alongside courses in Poetry, Life Writing and Fiction, they offer guidance on editing your work, summer schools and masterclasses. Read their story here.
