Book in a session to edit your writing, get feedback on a performance or discuss your creative ideas in a safe, encouraging space. I provide hour long sessions, in person if in the Auckland region or via Skype, catered to your needs as an artist. These one-on-one sessions allow you direct, honest discussions on how you can edit, grow and gain confidence.
From one hour to full day sessions, bring me to your school or community to provide a writing and/or performance workshop. I provide a nurturing environment for writers to explore and create with engaging prompts and feedback. Workshops are available and appropriate for Primary, Intermediate, High School and University schools as well as adult courses.
"A huge advantage of being taught by Carrie is her phenomenal editing ability. She worked with each of us 1 on 1 during the workshop in the time allocated for writing. Her advice helped me to clarify and strengthen my own personal voice instead of changing my poem into something she might have written herself. She never makes changes for the sake of changes and I always respect and value her feedback. Judging by the power and diversity of the poems others wrote in the class, this was clearly a shared experience. I’ve attended two of her workshops now and in both workshops the other men and women have produced stunning pieces that made me laugh, think and straight up weep. You would not believe that they had been produced over the course of a day long workshop. 10/10 would sign up again.."
