Over the years, Susan has been lucky enough to run writing workshops and courses in some spectacular overseas locations:

  • Australia – a range of workshops at the South Australian Writers’ Centre, Flinders University and the University of Adelaide, for the Size Acceptance Network in Adelaide and at the International Drama and Education Festival in Brisbane.
  • New Zealand – workshops focusing on how creative writing practices can be incorporated into the community health programme, with particular emphasis on eating behaviour and body image, in Auckland and Christchurch.
  • Finland – workshops at the Universities of Helsinki, Turku and Tampere and at a school in Espoo, in association with the British Council.
  • France – workshops at the British School of Paris.
  • Ireland – travel writing workshop at the Irish Writers’ Centre, Dublin.
  • Malta – Susan was invited to participate in a pan-European translation workshop by Wales Literature Exchange, in Valetta. At the final performance event, Susan’s poems were read in both English and Maltese.
