Artist profile

Linda Kempton


I run writing workshops covering prose,poetry and playwriting. I have carried out residencies in schools and a prison, as well as other long-term writing projects such as playwrighting courses. This is in addition to one-off days in schools and work with writing groups. I have also taught writing at undergraduate and post-graduate levels. I aim to be flexible and take an interactive approach. I like my workships to be both serious and fun. I am a member of the Society of Authors and an award-winning writer.
