“Writing is a job, a talent, but it’s also the place to go in your head. It is the imaginary friend you drink your tea with in the afternoon.” Ann Patchett
Classes and Workshops
I run a number of classes and workshops throughout the year. I am a MasterClass speaker for Apolitical’s writing courses, have lectured on the Storytelling for Social Justice course at Parson’s University, Paris as well as providing workshops and associated support for a number of other academic institutions.
This Autumn 2023 I will be running a Short-Storytelling Course – more details here.

Ridley’s Writing Room and The Write Lab
Every Tuesday evening at 8pm I host a session where writers gather together in a virtual room to write in-community. On a Friday lunchtime at 12pm, via The Write Lab section of RidleyWrites, I also co-host an identical session called The Write Lab.
It’s a supercool space and it’s amazing how much you can get done in less than an hour.
