I am experienced in facilitating workshops with adults of all levels of writing experience and ability. My experience has included work with the Stanley and Audrey Burton Gallery at Leeds University, the Poetry School, Writing Yorkshire, Leeds Museums, the WEA, LIPPfest and Sheffield Poetry Festival. I have become experienced and confident in tailoring my workshops to fit with various groups, learning styles and environments.
I have also done workshops in and out of schools with secondary school students between years 8 and 13, for organisations including the Poetry Society, Leeds Museums, Barnsley Museums and The Ted Hughes Project.
See my Forthcoming page for details of future workshops.
If you’re interested in working with me as a freelance workshop facilitator, or have any general questions, please contact me.
“Feedback from participants is always 100% positive and it is a pleasure to have her here in the Gallery. Suzannah is very professional, always prepared and is engaging, thoughtful and intelligent when going about working with the Gallery team as well as the workshop attendees. I cannot recommend her highly enough as an arts and education professional. It is always a pleasure to work with her.”
Lotte Inch, Stanley and Audrey Burton Gallery
I have received mentoring training and have worked with Writing Yorkshire, The Poetry Business and freelance, providing advice, setting goals and giving feedback. I find mentoring an absolute joy – I love getting to know a writers’ work and help them progress towards their goals. I would be happy to work with you on putting together a collection or pamphlet, so let me know what you’re working on and we can put together a rough idea of what you’d like.
I’m flexible in meeting mentoring needs, both online or in person, and for as many sessions as suit you. Anyone interested in mentoring please contact me with your questions.
A rough cost guide is £20 per hour but I’m happy to discuss this on an individual basis.
“I have no hesitation in recommending Suzannah as a mentor, working with her was a wonderful experience. Her approach was both professional and friendly in tone, successfully striking a great balance between encouragement and criticism.”
Kay Buckley, mentored through Writing Yorkshire.
