Write On was a programme of practical advice and guidance for writers who wanted to develop their skills in delivering participatory projects in community or education settings. Experienced facilitators, Rob Gee and Michael Supple, mentored potential workshop leaders, helping them to identify existing skills and those they would need to strengthen and develop in order to successfully interpret and deliver on a brief.
Rob is a poet, comic, and psych nurse who has won over twenty international awards for his solo shows as well as numerous poetry slams. He leads workshops in comedy, poetry, creative writing, improvisation and performance skills with all ages and ability ranges. He has extensive experience of working in schools and prisons, as well as with mental health service users. Michael Supple has worked as a freelance practitioner, coach, facilitator and consultant for nearly two decades. He has co-authored two books on the teaching of Shakespeare as well as other articles on drama’s role in the curriculum. He created Key Drama: Northamptonshire’s first after-school drama classes for young people. His work with and for young people has been recognised by the Royal Society of Arts, where he has recently been invited to become a Fellow.
