Carmen Walton


I write and sell short stories to women's magazines, carry out freelance work for businesses and run a variety of freelance writing courses. I've been writing for a long time and have undertaken all kinds of creative writing work. I firmly believe that reading is a superb occupation in its own right and one that makes creative writing possible. The same goes for plays and live performance. I live in Saddleworth and work in the North West.



Short Stories

Publications & Performance History

Have I Enough? Walking de Niro and Vanquishing the Gorbals - plays broadcast on BBC Radio 4 Sketches on Samstad Nacht and BBC Radio 4 Articles, poems, short stories published variously. Performances of stand up poetry/comedy at various UK venues and radio stations.

Workshop & Reading Experience

As a performance poet I gave many readings of work alone and with my writing partner. I have done many creative writing workshops as a freelancer and for large organisations. Also took a storytelling quilt into primary schools.

Group size preference

30 people would be my limit but I could work with larger groups if support staff are available.

Group age preference

Most of my experience is with adults but I'm happy to work with primary aged school children.
