as i approach a decade of delivering poetry workshops in a wide range of environments, i feel more enthusiastic about it than ever. it’s by far one of my favourite aspects of my career as a poet and something that i never want to stop doing.

so, to put it simply, i’m looking for school bookings for the 2022/23 academic year. i’m based in Leeds with a car and predominantly looking for bookings around Yorkshire, but am always happy to hear from schools all over the UK.

if you’re interested and want to learn more, head to my Education page or use the Contact form to get in touch and speak to me about it. i charge a competitive national rate plus expenses and am also available for longer-term/block bookings if we can make it work.

whether it’s igniting the imaginations of first-time KS2 poets or working with GCSE groups to make the anthologies feel more accessible, i’m always up for the challenge. as well as mainstream, i have experience in PRUs and SEMH schools plus pupils who’ve been excluded from the education system altogether.

if you work in education and think that this might be of interest to your colleagues and peers, please feel free to share the image above. i’m looking forward to hearing from you at some point. in the meantime, have a great summer!
