Workshops


From setting intentions to finding joy in the everyday, I love to create bespoke creative writing workshops for groups big and small.

I have experience running workshops for both adults and children and have worked with Make It Better, the Writers’ Block and Artswell. I have a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching Creative Writing from Cambridge University and an MA in Professional Writing from Falmouth University.

I run regular workshops in Calliope’s Writers and am available to hire. Please contact me to find out more.

By enrolling on to the course you agree to the following:

Pick-up and drop-off

The course is drop-off only. Please ensure you accompany your child to the classroom door and do not leave them until they have been handed over to the facilitator running the session. If your child is going to be collected by someone else other than the person who made the booking, please inform us prior to the workshop starting. Unfortunately we cannot accept early drop-offs or late pick-ups. 

The safety of your child and other children is our top priority. We ask that parents/guardians remain with their child until the workshop has officially started. Please ensure your child has used the toilet before we begin. We ask that your child agrees to not put themselves or others at risk while taking part in the creative writing club.

Fostering respect and kindness

We want to foster a positive environment filled with kindness, creativity and respect. We kindly ask that you and your child agree to treat all participants with kindness and respect. In the rare situation where a workshop participant is disruptive, consistently not following instructions and/or acting in ways that could cause harm to themselves or other children, we may need to remove them from the activity whilst keeping them safe in the studio. In this instance, you may be required to collect your child before the end of the scheduled session. 

Sharing work and photography

We love to share and promote the work that is created during the workshops. By agreeing to these terms and conditions, you also grant us permission to share images of the work produced and of the workshops taking place.  If you would prefer that you or your child does not appear in any images we use online or on social media, please let us know directly by emailing lucy@lucybeckley.com.


“Lucy has a way of structuring her workshops so that a simple creative task can take you deep into the knottiest parts of your own creative process. She manages to facilitate deep work in a way that feels easy and painless. I can’t recommend these workshops highly enough: I always come away with both a set of practical tools and a feeling of wellbeing.”
