Meet Kath Morgan

My two great passions are writing and teaching; I’m a qualified teacher with a Masters in Professional Writing (with distinction) and for the past thirty years I’ve taught at university, at adult education and in schools. My favourite forms of writing are the short story and the novel, but I enjoy working with writers across the spectrum. When I'm not teaching, I can be found out and about with Becks, our writing retreat dog, parked up somewhere in my camper-van, scribbling away or editing. When I first decided to learn how to write fiction ‘properly’, it felt as if there was some elusive secret that only those born to be writers could be let in on. There isn't. There’s the craft, and there’s the practice - and I can teach you the craft.

Meet Jane Moss

I've been a writer for as long as I can remember, from stories at school, to copywriting and journalism, guidebooks and poetry. I've been teaching writers full-time since 2009, drawing on my own professional expertise as a writer and qualifications to Masters level (with distinction). On a typical day you'll find me in my garden office, teaching and writing, my two favourite activities. During lockdown I've been struck by how much we need our creative outlets. Writing is one of the most accessible; you just need a pen or laptop, a quiet spot, an idea that fires your imagination, and off you go. My job is to keep you motivated and show you the skills of creative writing that make it satisfying. I can't wait to work with you.
