I have been teaching writing since 1990. Here are a few tips that I have put together in that time. I hope you find them useful.
If you'd like me to come into your school, college, library or festival to give a talk or run a workshop, then contact me here.
I also run a wide variety of residential courses for budding young writers aged 10 -18 (school/college yrs 5-13) at Kilve Court http://www.kilvecourt.org/enrcourse.asp
You can also try my course on writing for children at the Open College of the Arts.

Many thanks for last Wednesday – the pupils have been highly enthusiastic, and several have continued with their stories! A great day was had by all. Matt Hall, Hardenhuish School
Your session was brilliant (lots of people were talking about it on the way out; (think you got a unanimous happy opinion). You totally made my day. Postgrad feedback, Bath Spa University OVOT conference 2012
I've had students come up to me all yesterday saying how much they enjoyed your talk. Carol Armitage, Preston Academy
Thank you! It was a fantastic day! We would welcome you back any day. Sarah Laws, Wivelisombe Primary School.
The students found Beth great fun to work with and left inspired. Jo Stephenson head teacher St Dunstan’s School, Glastonbury
Thank you for all your hard work yesterday - it was an excellent day - the feedback figures are great. National Trust Avebury
Thank you so much for the wonderful workshop - I hope you found it as rewarding and moving as I did. I… really felt that the whole evening was an unmissable event. Thank you for a professional and well organised event. National Trust Avebury
Thank you for a brilliant day, it went so well and you were such an inspiration! St Dunstan’s School, Glastonbury
Thank you very much for yesterday – I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. Some of the students are still buzzing – apparently one of the boys (who hadn’t wanted to come in the first place) thanked his English teacher for selecting him. Minehead College
I wanted to congratulate you on such a stunningly successful day… I have heard so much praise from all the staff concerned. The Well Wisher Booskhop
Thank you for a fantastic day yesterday. The children really enjoyed their time. Their faces were a picture as you told the ghost story – hanging on every word you said. They really enjoyed building up different worlds, particularly in the nature area. What they also really appreciated was you being able to look at their writing and being told that it was good and that they had lovely ideas. Bawdrip School
