I believe that self expression is essential for humans to be healthy. When we open our hearts up enough, enabling others to see their own humanity reflected back to them, real healing happens. And poetry has the power to take what’s inside of us and give voice to our unique expression in a way that no other art form can!

I’m passionate about sharing my love of poetry and run workshops for people of all backgrounds, abilities and ages – from young adults to seniors.

Depending on requirements I offer one off 2 or 3 hr workshops, full days, or 6 week courses. I’m very flexible and can adapt to your needs, just get in touch!


“Amy’s invigorating, life affirming poetry celebrates the fierce and the hopeless in all of us.” 



Unleashing Your Poetic Voice Workshop

I lead workshops designed to crack us open and get to the heart of our poetic voice.

Write some exciting new poetry and share it in a safe and welcoming space where your unique creativity is not only supported but passionately encouraged.

Workshops can focus purely on writing, or involve a performance component

Things you’ll learn:
  • How to switch off the critic, tap into inspiration and write more often
  • How to structure, edit, shape a poem – what to focus on, what to leave out
  • How to drill down to the heart of what you are wanting to express in a poem
  • How to be proud of and embrace the quirks that make your poetry unique and present that to an audience
  • How to get more comfortable sharing our work and exposing our vulnerability when sharing our words with an audience
  • Acting techniques for performing our poetry
