Briony Goffin has an MA in The Teaching and Practice of Creative Writing and a BSc in Psychology. She has been teaching creative writing in academic, community and healthcare contexts since 2002, in South Wales and the South West of England.
She has published widely on the art of teaching creative writing and supporting the emergent writer/student to fulfil their creative potential. She is a specialist in facilitating workshops for vulnerable or marginalized adults, particularly individuals with mental health problems.
Briony is currently involved in a 3-year project that aims to enable individuals, through workshops and one-to-one meetings, to write their first-hand experiences of Whitchurch Hospital in Cardiff. More information can be found out about the Whitchurch Project at www.academi.org
Briony’s own writing takes the form of the lyrical essay, which laces together autobiographical fragments, theories and reflections on the moments and encounters that shape our world.
Briony also has a keen interest in interdisciplinary relations between creative writing and other art forms, particularly the photographic and conceptual arts.
Her current creative output examines the processes and consequences of collaborative relationships between artists and addresses the possibilities and difficulties of multi-media expression.
