I have over 17 years experience of writing and performing poetry in my beloved North East; creating unique and personal gifts of words for friends and family. Celebrating newborns, weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and to commemorate deaths. Even dedications for departing colleagues and in recognition of fellow performer-preneurs.
A regular guest on BBC Radio Newcastle and in local arts venues, I am taking my passion for words, creativity and approachability to create bespoke gifts of poetry for all occasions. Together we will create something unique and personalised which communicates succintly what you want to say to your recipient. I can help you to find the words and take the difficulty out of sourcing a truly personalised present. Should you want to read or perform this piece at an event, such as a wedding or christening, I can coach you in delivery too. On top of my experience in performance poetry I am also an actor and communications trainer to corporate and medical professionals.
After an inital consultation to understand more about your recipient, the event date and the style or tone required I will draft a work for your approval. Feel free to get in touch for further clarification as I would be happy to discuss your exact needs.
I am completing development in the design, planning and delivery of creative writing workshops through a unique training programme, ‘Make it Happen’ in conjuction with ‘Helix Arts’. I will thereafter be delivering creative writing workshops online or in person, initially based in the North East of England but not limited to this area. Do get in touch if interested!
