Carol Preston biography
Currently I teach Creative Writing to people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities including children. Writing, in all its different genres, is my passion. I’m told my passion overflows into my teaching – which is good news for my students.
I have been writing for about fifteen years and during this time I have completed two degrees in Creative Writing. On the Masters Degree I was awarded a prize from a leading literary agent for the most promising writing. My aim is to be a published writer of fiction. I am, I believe, a work in progress.
I love writing in all its forms: from novels, to children’s stories, to poetry, to plays, to song-writing to name but some of them. In short I love the way that words can transport you to places you’ve never been, into time periods you will never experience and, maybe most of all, into people’s hearts and lives you will never meet.
