Teaching creative writing


Creative writing teaching on offer!

Not all authors are comfortable talking about their craft. Some are painfully shy, others simply don’t do public speaking or teaching.

Fortunately, Derek is neither shy nor afraid of talking in public. In fact, he loves teaching – imparting knowledge and sharing ideas. After all, education comes from educare – to bring out.

Derek is a tutor in creative writing for Cambridge University’s Institute of Continuing Education, and specialises in nature, place and landscape, and what’s called life memoir. He teaches both face-to-face and online to students from all over the world.

He is more than happy to teach creative writing to individuals, groups, organisations or schools. In fact, he’d love to be asked.

If you’d be interested in what Derek has to offer, then please do get in touch – click on the contacts page above for details.

PS. Are you wondering about the strange picture at the top of the page? Take a look at it upside down and you’ll discover that it’s a very ordinary frosty riverbank. But that’s the point – creative writing is about finding and sharing the extraordinary in what can be the very ordinary!
