Author. Tutor. Mentor

If you’re keen to expand your writing skills, or thinking about dipping your toe into the world of online courses, look no further.

As the author of four novels and a work of non-fiction, I have a wealth of experience to share.

I am an associate tutor of creative writing at the University of Dundee, deliver courses on behalf of Lifelong Learning Dundee and have been involved with writing for wellbeing in various healthcare settings over many years.

“Sandra’s generous, welcoming spirit has me returning to workshops, both in person and online, again and again. Sharing her extensive knowledge on a wide range of writing styles – novel, short story, folklore, poetry – in a calm, encouraging manner, means participants blossom and share too, leading to rich, informative classes. If you are offered the opportunity to learn from Sandra, please grasp it firmly with both hands!”
