Natasha Carlish, Arvon Centre Director at the Hurst: “Lucy combines an incredible intellect with considerable teaching skill. Her generosity of spirit means that she is able to encourage and nurture even the most un-confident of writers and that under her tutelage students flourish. As a guest reader she has wowed and impressed audiences and programmers alike. Lucy is a wonderful asset to any programme or reading and it is always a great pleasure to host her at The Hurst.”
What can I say – there is little that I love more than sharing my love of writing with others, and enabling others to share my love of writing in turn! I am a vastly experienced tutor, having taught creative writing at the Universities of Salford, Cumbria, Strathclyde and Leeds Beckett. I have both tutored and been the guest on Arvon residential courses, and during 2020 I’m tutoring a writing retreat on Writing and Walking with Grevel Lindop at The Hurst.
Previously, I have worked with writers in a range of community settings, most notably during an extended residency with Balloch Community Woodland and Creetown Primary School, which led to the development of a poetry trail and standing stone circle in the local woodland.
Please get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org for any tutoring or residency opportunities, working with writers of any age or experience.
