About Phil


You do not have to be a full-time student or have hundreds of pounds of disposable income to improve your writing. I know dozens of people who have paid huge sums of money for writing residential retreats and “expert” seminars, and not seen an improvement in their writing.

I’ve created these plans because I think everyone can improve their writing, no matter what their experience.


Masters (with Distinction) from Queens University Belfast in Creative Writing in 2011.


I’ve been enjoying writing for 15 years. I’ve written everything and met all sorts of writers. You can see more of my creative work on my personal website.


I’ve worked with theatre groups, adult writing classes and schools to develop creative writing and acting courses.
