Get writing

Rachel has worked with both new and aspiring writers to provide opportunities to participate in creative writing.

When working with those who are writing for the first time, she builds confidence by creating a safe and encouraging environment.

Rachel has run a wide range of writing events – whether independently, with established writing groups, or with organisations.

For many projects, she has recorded the resulting creative output for listenupnorth.
