"I've taught poetry to people from all walks of life and have witnessed its transformative power. My approach is to create a warm and friendly atmosphere where people feel inspired to write, share and listen. I believe that writing can help you to make sense of the past and the present - even if the subject matter is disturbing, the act of creation is positive."
