Experience

I’m a qualified social worker and recently graduated with an MA in Creative Writing, specializing in Poetry and Teaching Creative Writing. I am in the process of setting up my own limited company, that runs creative writing sessions in old people’s homes, both nursing and residential. I am very interested in working with people with dementia and researching the benefits of poetry and dementia.
