About Me.

I’ve been teaching creative writing at university and in the community for more than 15 years. My passion is small group workshops and one-to-one tutorials. I focus on new ideas and revision, short and long projects, fiction and creative nonfiction. 

I’ve written two novels, numerous short stories and personal essays and a few poems. My most recent project is a book about looking after an allotment garden plot in the UK.

Testimonials

Hear what others say about working with me.
Picture of a woman in an orange checked shirt writing in a journal.

‘One of the finest teachers/tutors I have ever worked with. She combines a unique blend of academic acumen with the skills and instincts of a
professional writer in order that you learn both “how” to write and “how” to be yourself in your writing. She balanced the use of articles, references to classic
works, and educational resources with long discussion of my specific work in order that I was able to find advice and inspiration in both. I know that I am a far better writer, and have far more trust in myself as a writer, since working with Lania. I could not recommend her more highly’.
