Creative writing is my passion and when I’m not writing my own work, I love nothing more than inspiring imagination in other people. I have travelled all over the country, helping hundreds of thousands of people to write – and not one of them has been unable to produce a story in my classes.
I offer THREE WACKY WORKSHOPS to cater for all my creative customers. Different workshops can be combined within the same school day, with as many children as space and staffing will allow. Please note that I can only run a maximum of an assembly and three workshops in a school day.
If you would like to book a school visit, please send me a message via the contact page.
So check out Maz’s menu…

Inspired by the anarchic world of Who Let the Gods Out?, Maz will use the opening scene of WLTGO to teach young writers the importance of Point of View - whose shoes are you standing in and how does it change the story if you look at events from someone else's perspective? Important lessons to be learned in writing - and indeed, in life...
45-minute workshop, recommended for Yrs R – 2
Rosie’s always getting into trouble – she’s such a Nosey Parker! But Maz’s heroine will help little people to use their imaginations to draw (or write) what Nosey Rosie might find on her adventures.
A gentle introduction to creative writing that will encourage little minds to have big ideas.
