Contrary to popular belief, creative writing can be a shared, social activity. Invisible Ink’s founder, Amanda Block, is a firm believer in the power of face-to-face feedback, collaboration, and group learning. Through her work in classrooms and with writers’ groups, she has witnessed first-hand the many benefits of exchanging ideas, experiences, and—of course—stories.
Amanda currently teaches novel-writing and beginner, intermediate and advanced creative writing with the City of Edinburgh Council’s Adult Education Programme. She has also taught creative writing to young adults with ISSOS International Summer Schools, run writing workshops in both the UK and Switzerland, and chaired events at the Edinburgh International Book Festival.
If you are an individual or organisation looking for a creative writing teacher or workshop facilitator, Amanda would love to hear from you. She is particularly interested in working with new writers, establishing writing groups and communities, and exploring writing for wellbeing.
TEACHING AND WORKSHOPS
STILL NOT SURE?
If you are an individual looking for regular, one-to-one guidance on a specific writing project, you might want to try Mentoring.
If you are an individual looking for feedback on a complete or partially complete writing project, you might want to try Manuscript Assessment.
