Writing

Information about my writing; where to find writing resources; advice for teachers interested in breaking into educational writing.

I thought it was about time I added more to my site as a writer and for writers. I’m concerned with writing in three main ways, so I’ll address all of those here:

As a teacher, lamenting the loss of the Creative Writing A Level (and appreciating some of the changes in writing in GCSE). I addressed this in the teacher section, but the resources and advice for writers found here can also be used with students.

As a person who writes fiction for their own pleasure and aiming for eventual publication. My fiction writing is largely for children and young people. My links and resources for writers will be useful to those who also write for children/young people, but also to those writing for adults, since not all of the sites and resources I reference are that specific.

As a writer of published teaching resources and textbooks for students on various topics within English. I’m often asked how I got started/how others could try to do the same, so I’ve put a page together with some advice, but please do be aware that as with all writing, a lot of it is luck/right place, right time and there are never any guarantees.
