Poetry readings/writing workshops/reminiscence

I have a variety of readings, including light-hearted and comic verse. I sometimes read my grandmother, Effie M Roberts's poems, (from the books 'Winter Jasmine', 'The Golden Glory has Fled' and 'A Wartime Poetry Journal'. Many of her poems are humorous. As a professional writer I am also able to offer writing workshops (poetry, short stories, journalism, and scripts). Please note that this price is a special one - for homes and charitable institutions only.

I travel a lot with work, so can do readings in many different areas, if I can fit them round my schedule.
