I have eight years of experience in workshop facilitation, tutoring, writing mentoring and most recently lecturing. I am on the Scottish Book Trust’s Live Lit database and have planned and facilitated writing and poetry workshops and sessions for a wide range of groups such as young people, teenagers, migrants, University students and adult learners. My areas of expertise are scriptwriting and spoken word.
I have directed numerous staged performances for young people, including Toonspeak’s Word of Mouth showcase two years running, featuring a mixture of fresh talent and professional performers. In 2016, I co-directed PEEK’s Youth Theatre show based around the theme of mental health. Previous to that I have worked as a writing mentor and assistant director on many issue-based performances, focusing on themes such as fame, the media, stress and anxiety and gender. In addition to my work with young people, I have guest tutored the third year acting students at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and was an associate lecturer in screenwriting at University of the West of Scotland between 2015 and 2016. I have planned and facilitated writing workshops for companies such as Migrant Voice and Glasgow Life too.
