Creative Writing Advice

In my new writing advice series on YouTube, I tackle a different piece of writing advice in each episode. I'll be picking apart advice about story craft or characterisation, explaining how to recreate it in your own writing, and referencing examples from popular fiction.

My videos are going out three times a week, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9:30am. If you have any writing questions I can help with, get in touch.


Creative Writing For Kids

I released a series of videos writing lessons for children to help during lockdown. I take pieces of writing advice, and break them into bitesize chunks. I reference Disney movies and kids books, to explain different writing techniques and make children better and more confident writers.

Check out my Creative Writing For Kids page, full of writing games and activities, a pinterest board, and a much more.
