talks and workshops

Mark’s presentations and workshops provide ideas and strategies to inspire and enhance creative writing, from simple rhyming through to the extensive research involved in creating historical fiction.

Through inspiring stories from our past, students become involved in the process of writing: from the origins and inspirations of an idea (and the ‘journeys of discovery’ that help balance creative interpretation with historical authenticity), to the stages involved in the development of a storyline and publication.
