“I learned more about poetry in one hour with Lloyd Robson
than I did on my degree and postgraduate courses.”

Clare Potter
(Creative Writing tutor, Cardiff Centre for Lifelong Learning,
and winner of the 2004 John Tripp Award for Spoken Poetry

LLOYD ROBSON has been employed as a teaching artist (creative writing) and writer's mentor since 1997. He has supported writers of fiction (short story and novel), nonfiction (autobiography, biography, features, reportage and travel) and poetry (especially the musicality of language, open-field structures and prose-poetry). Whatever your levels of ability and ambition, LLOYD can challenge, encourage and reassure you, and help you get the best out of your writing.

Lloyd Robson has run creative writing workshops at Parc Prison on several occasions... He clearly believes that writing and creativity can be a positive force for anyone, whatever their background and disadvantages in life... I have no reservation in recommending Lloyd and his work to anyone seeking to employ a significant poet and prose craftsman in contemporary idioms. He will rise to any situation and deliver.

Lloyd, I thought that you would be pleased to know that I obtained A* in both English Literature and English Language and I won the Best Performance in English Language award in my school's awards evening yesterday. I just wanted to say thank you for all the years of teaching and advice you gave to me and that I am still enjoying writing in English Language at A level and for enjoyment whenever I can.
