I have taught creative writing, fiction, life writing and journalism over many years at colleges and universities, in the UK and abroad, including Birkbeck College (University of London), London South Bank University, London School of Journalism, Geneva Writers Conference, Arvon Foundation, British Council and City Lit. I have also been mentor, editor and consultant.

I also run an occasional, one-day Family History Writing Course
