I am available to teach poetry workshops for all ages. Please contact me directly for more information.

Examples of workshops I've run include:

Strange Worlds: a Visual Poetry Workshop

A workshop focusing on visual poetry. Participants are invited to be the settlers on a newly terraformed planet (or setting of their choice). They will produce a collaborative calligram and go on to create their own visual poems. At Nine Worlds 2018, participants displayed their poems as a pop-up exhibition following the workshop.

“Angela is a great teacher, always ready to give suggestions but never judgmental; the time limit, not being alone, thinking carefully about every word, turned it all into my favourite Nine Worlds experience of this year. I want more.” – Visual Poetry Workshop participant

Masked Poetry

A workshop where participants choose and wear a mask of their choice throughout. The workshop focuses on freedom through pretence and the use of personae in poetry with the focus on producing new material.

“Angela was skilled, professional and lovely. The masked workshop was fascinating and immersive; I would recommend it as a way of getting out of your comfort zone and creating something new.” – Masked Poetry Workshop participant

Your Mind, a Treasure Trove
A workshop exploring the list poem. Participants will craft a poem from memories, real or imagined. Inspired by Paul Farley's poem "I Ran All The Way Home".

Mentoring and feedback

I am available for mentoring or one-off feedback sessions in the Egham area. Please get in touch via the contact page for rates and to discuss your needs.

“Angela has been mentoring me since June 2018. Through gentle coaching, she has helped me express what I was trying to say and validated my desire to say it.” – poetry mentee
