I have been teaching creative writing for over fifteen years with organisations such as Bath Spa University, (where I gained an MA in Creative Writing), and The Open University. My specialisms are fiction and creative nonfiction, as well as writing for young adults.

Education is not the filling of a pot but the lighting of a fire.’
W.B. Yeats

Telephone Consultations

One of my favourite ways to teach is by working with individual writers, identifying the challenges that are specific to them, and discovering solutions and innovative new ways of working and thinking that are tailored to their needs. Creativity starts from within, so this is very often where our conversation will begin, and by the end of the consultation I aim for the writer to go away with a clear plan for moving their project forward.

These sessions last for one hour, and beforehand you’ll have sent me a one-page synopsis (where appropriate) and a three page sample of your writing.

Price: £45.00 per one-hour session.

Sally Gander is a thoughtful and empathic tutor, who possesses an incredible ability to guide writers on how to develop their creative process, as well as applying practical teachings to help them create a compelling story. Even working virtually, her techniques stick well beyond the lesson.
I recommend her highly.
