Welcome to dipdoomagazoo, where I blog and post details of forthcoming gigs, workshops and creative writing mentoring.

I live and work in Whitley Bay and have my fingers in several creative pies. As one of the Directors of Happy Planet Creative Arts CIC I run creative writing workshops and help run a popular  poetry appreciation group called Poetry with Friends.  For more information on Happy Planet please visit the website or like on Facebook

I also run arts events, workshops and offer one to one creative writing mentoring via arts organisation The Next Page. Please look at my workshop and mentoring page on this blog  or visit The Next Page’s  website, Ticketsource page or like on Facebook

Forthcoming workshops: Saturday 3rd December Ekphrasis workshop at Whitley Bay Library followed by Words of Comfort (Food) workshop on Tuesday 6th December in Happy Planet Studio and Gallery in Ilfracombe Gardens, Whitley Bay.
