Teaching and Mentoring
I have taught creative writing and fiction at all levels, from beginner to Master’s Degree. I also run workshops for academics (from undergraduates to professors) on how to make their writing more engaging and intelligible. In every class and workshop, I aim for a synthesis of inspiration and practical aptitude. I approach creative writing not only as an academic subject, but also as something offering rewards beyond the academic and commercial. My journey from the world of the law, to the very different, but overlapping, world of fiction, has shaped my belief in the power of storytelling: every single one of us has a tale to tell, and some of us, many more. Or, as Dickens puts it in The Pickwick Papers, there are some things better out than in.
