Hello:) I a member of the Southwell affiliated ACW meeting of the Reindeer writers and Nottingham Cornerstone Church. For many years I’ve supported learning in schools. After studying creative writing at Lancaster University I won a couple of short story competitions. Now, Fiona I enjoy being a freelance creative writing practitioner in diverse settings. Personally, I find writing therapeutic and produced a debut, young adult novel called, ‘Get Over It.’ This sensitively tells of the loss of a Mum by a youth and how he and his dad adapt. This was after volunteering at a local day hospice and child bereavement centre.
Then, I was published with a short story anthology ebook called, ‘The Heavenly Road Trip’. A story from this anthology was included in print at the Connect Exhibition at the Attenborough Arts Centre, Leicester University, where I deliver Lifelong Learning classes. The same contemporary Paralympic tale, called ’Still First’ went onto London and the Bermondsey Project Gallery, to be experienced as performance art, on behalf of the RNIB charity at The Perception Exhibition. The multi-sensory story was then heard as a recording, for the week following from 18th August, 2012.
An American Christian anthology publisher included my Love story in Spiritual Awakenings anthology This won the Unique Writing Publications award in 2010.
A poem written about a piece of pottery held at the Ay-ttenborough was included in a 2016 anthology called, Welcome to Leicester. That was called, Our Picasso Dish. A line from it was projected onto a wall in Nottingham as part of a Line of Lights this year with Jo Fairfax.
