Talks and Classes


I have given more than a hundred talks on my research to audiences from ten to 250. My talks are well-illustrated and last about an hour (with questions). Topics available include:

  • The Welsh Settlement of Patagonia
  • The history of the city of Chester.


As well as being a qualified secondary school teacher, I have taught creative writing at universities to classes of around thirty, and established and run creative WEA to classes of around 12. I have also given one-off workshops at various literature festivals. Topics include:

  • starting to write
  • writing about place
  • writing from history
  • dialogue
