The Word Tinker!

Keen to promote literacy with your students? Wondering how to get them excited about poetry and prose? 

I can offer assemblies with spoken word performance and Q&A, one-off workshops, or even longer schemes of work to help inspire your students. I am often accompanied by Otto the Travelling Bear, who helps hunt for stories with younger students.

Have another idea? Wonderful! I'm happy to discuss a project

personalised for your school or group.

Previous partners have included New Writing North, The Lit & Phil, Whickham High School, Seven Stories, and the National Literacy Trust. I hold a current Enhanced DBS. Book a visit with The Word Tinker today!

Meet The Word Tinker - cobbler of words,

a teller of stories: the sad and absurd!
