Lecturer and Tutor
A new book
About me: I’ve been teaching creative writing at university and in the community for more than 20 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 a collection of essays, two novels, a poetry pamphlet, numerous short stories and personal essays. My current project is a how-to book for creative writers.
I work with writers.

‘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 â€œhowâ€ to write and â€œhowâ€ 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’.
