I have had a period of travelling and intensive working on some new translation, so in many ways it feels as if the ‘autumn term’ is just beginning.
I am receiving a steady stream of enquiries regarding training in therapeutic writing and am looking at setting up some new ways of training – watch this space!
Meanwhile, Kent is enjoying a golden autumn – here is a bunch of the last flowers from a friend’s garden.

I am delighted to be participating in the Folkestone Book Festival, giving a workshop on Writing for Health and Wellbeing on the 26th November.
I had a great time at the Sandwich Festival Poetry Day on the 24th September – a real pleasure to read with Helen Ivory and to hear a range of wonderful poets. Here is a snap of Katherine Pierpoint, Jeff Loffman and me enjoying Jo Field’s reading.
Charmaine Pollard – fully qualified as a Certified Poetry Therapist – is running a workshop together with Narayani Guibarra on Writing for Wellbeing – Fluidity: How to be both grounded and flexible – 3rd December 2016 in London – Booking here
The well-established course Graham Hartill and I have been teaching at Ty Newydd for the past nine years – Writing in Health and Social Care – is next running the week of 13th November 2017. Ty Newydd is one of the most beautiful places I know and the course is always (and differently) a memorable experience.
