About Me! I love to make learning fun, so I write in rhyme to teach and entertain. I have an Honours degree in Montessori Education (teaching 3-12 year olds)

My Writing Workshop is all about having fun and enjoying the workshop. I will be reading poetry samples and you can perform a piece of your own writing (work in progress) at the end. I will include some easy tips to help write in rhyme – plus some rhyming games and funny poetry, including Limericks, Acrostics, Rhyming couplets, short story writing with prompts and story stones, and much more fun to be had!
