Introduction to Creative Writing

I am now leading two seminar groups for the above module. This involves curating and delivering weekly 2-hour classes which provide a basic initiation to writing prose and poetry. I set preparation and homework tasks and devise weekly in-class reading and writing exercises to ensure my students get as much practice as possible, executing the various techniques we have covered and examined.

Introduction to Creative Writing (shadowing)

As part of the GTA scheme, I shadowed Dr. Andy Brown on this module. Here I observed and assisted weekly seminars which covered the building blocks of both prose and poetry, and devised and delivered the 9th week seminar on 'dialogue'.

Private Tutoring Creative Writing

I tutor Creative Writing privately in London to students from institutions such as Birkbeck and Goldsmiths. This allows me to develop my one-on-one teaching skills, as well as exposing me to a number of different approaches to the discipline.
