Poetry Coaching


Do you want impartial advice from a widely published, prize winning poet? Do you want to improve your work?  Do you want new ideas, techniques, challenges?

Then look no further. I've got you covered.

I offer intensive one to one feedback on your poems. No more waiting your turn in crowded workshops with people you don't know. No more amateur comments from people who last read poetry in school.


If you are serious about your craft and want to develop, think about investing in yourself. Ideally you will have been reading and writing poetry for some time and even had a few things published.


Send me half a dozen poems (not epics obviously) and we'll meet to discuss them. Be prepared for rigorous comment.


As little or often as you like. Times to be mutually agreed, but evenings and weekends only. Come once a year. Come every month.


In a cafe in Central London or at my home in West London.

What's the catch?

Ah, yes, the small matter of money. I charge £25 for a 30 minute session and £40 for an hour. This of course includes my time for reading and thinking about your work in advance. Cash in the usual brown envelope, please.

For preparing poetry manuscripts for publication, I have a different scale of fees. Please enquire.

For poetry creative workshops on a multiplicity of themes for your group, please enquire. I am available to lead these anywhere in the UK, and beyond. Please enquire.
