I lead creative writing workshops outdoors for the Wild Wye Web, Open Ground Writing and National Resources Wales. I also lead writing workshops in schools in Powys for Arts Alive. We are currently focusing on using creative writing to develop pupil confidence and knowledge of Welsh Poetry. When not teaching I am working on my book about sailing around Svalbard in a hundred old wooden boat - a Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter. Sturdy, heavy on the helm and strong, Dolphin has survived 100 years of sailing and surviving the wild currents and Westerlies of The Bristol Channel. A good boat to sail up into the pack ice.
