My Teaching Work

I've been a published writer for over twenty years now and I greatly enjoy sharing what I know and am still discovering with new or emerging writers. I teach creative writing to both adults and children and greatly enjoy this work. I teach Start Writing for Children and Teens and Finish Your Children's Book courses at the Irish Writers Centre. For details of my current courses, see their website.

I host Writing Clubs for children of age 7+ and 9+ at the Lexicon Library, Dún Laoghaire. For details email:

You can also book me to teach a writing class or course at your school, library or festival via my contact page. 

Writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can only see as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way. EL Doctorow
