From Reader to Writer encourages participants to start writing and exploring essential techniques in this area. Samples of reading will be given and talked about to discuss plot, character building and setting. Students will then begin writing their own stories with guidance from Dani.  The course is intended to inspire and challenge in a fun environment that is conducive to learning and imagining. Participants should have an interest in reading and writing but this is all.

All participants will receive a certificate, a bookmark, and a notepad to take away with them upon completion of the course.

Passion for Poetry is a bespoke workshop in poetry appreciation for adults or young people. Work from contemporary poets is selected and presented by Dani, connected with a particular theme. The sessions are designed for people to experience poetry in a relaxed setting, where no prior knowledge of poetry is needed, and instead, poetry is used as a jumping off point for discussion and conversation.

Sessions can be tailored to any group and are available online and in person. Dani sometimes delivers these sessions to bookclubs who may want to try poetry as a focus for a change.
