About

‘Ken was brilliant. His workshops were thoroughly enjoyed by all the students. He worked with the whole of year 8 in a large workshop and also in small groups with year 10 and 9, all the students were engaged. It was amazing how quickly he got them writing creative pieces. Ken also did a year 7 assembly, we had some ICT issues which he was unfazed by and delivered the session without his ppt, which really helped us. Would certainly book Ken again.’

Eden Boys’ Leadership Academy, Birmingham East

I offer full and half day school visits, including an assembly and creative writing workshops.

The sessions can be flexible and I am happy to talk with you about any particular outcomes you have for the day.

Creative writing is my passion and enabling others to write creatively is a fantastic privilege.

My workshops are fun, fast and all about inspiring the young people to write as soon as possible in the sessions. I encourage sharing our work and the results always surprise and delight me.

I have been leading monthly creative writing workshops for children and young adults for six years now with Writing West Midlands, I was commissioned twice to work with the ReadOn EU Project, and I have visited schools, colleges, and universities.

I am DBS checked and hold public liability insurance.

I write young adult books, with strong female and male leads, and plotlines involving demons in Victorian London, time travelling dinosaurs and a supernatural pirate tale.

I also write horror and thriller novels for adults, and pocket novel romances for the My Weekly range.

I’m also a member of the Association of Speakers Clubs, and meet twice a month to hone my public speaking skills. I am also on the committee, and responsible for education.

I love visiting schools and running workshops, and I believe it is more important than ever that we equip our young people to write and read well, extensively, imaginatively and with clarity, and able to be inclusive of all cultures and groups whilst celebrating our differences.
