ABOUT MARIE BASTING

  • After many years of working as a change manager, I decided I fancied a change myself. So I took redundancy and signed up for an MA Creative Writing. I now spend my time writing and supporting other writers. As Assistant Regional Advisor Networks for the SCBWI British Isles, I commission and deliver development support for writers and illustrators at all stages of their careers. Drawing on my extensive experience of facilitation and personal development, I also provide creative writing support to schools offering a range of innovative workshops linked to the National Curriculum. 

    An engaging and professional learning practitioner, I have been commissioned to participate in numerous literary events and regularly deliver creative writing outreach support for Manchester Metropolitan University.
