Creative Writing

I’ve been teaching fiction writing to adults for over a decade now and have many loyal students. Several have published their work and/or won short story prizes.

This autumn come and join me for a new online course. ONLINE 5-week Short Course: Writing in Response to Personal & Contemporary History. Writing West Midlands. On 9, 16, 23, 30 Nov and 7 Dec 2023. Thursdays, 7-9pm. Book here.

And, excitingly. in 2024 I’ll be running a Writers’ Retreat on the beautiful island of Lismore off the West Coast of Scotland.

WRITERS’ RETREAT, Lismore, Scotland. First week of September 2023. You’ll meet like-minded writers and spend the mornings in workshops exploring aspects of the craft with Priscilla. The afternoons are yours. You’re free to write, walk, swim, visit the Gaelic Heritage Centre and Museum or join guided excursions to take in this beautiful island. There will be evening gatherings – perhaps a ceilidh, definitely a final night get together with readings. Exact dates to be confirmed. Maximum ten students. Please register your interest at the bottom of the page.


I also offer one-to-one mentoring services and manuscript assessment to fiction and creative nonfiction writers.


My popular ten-week online courses Creative Writing for Beginners and Carry On Writing will next run in 2024. You can read these testimonials to see what past students have to say.
