Una’s Pencil Post

Una’s Pencil Post is the first of my brand-new short courses that aim to get the nation drawing stories. You’ll need only a packet of pencils and paper, which I’ll send to you in the post, and your thinking cap, which you’ll need to provide yourself. The next course, Writing with Pictures, will launch in May.

Who is this Una person, and what can she teach me about drawing or writing?

Hopefully, if you’ve read my books you’ll know I’m a versatile, expressive artist in both image and word, but what you might not know is that is that I have 14 years experience teaching art, design and critical studies to undergraduates in universities and British art schools *and* I’ve designed scores of community courses for adults in all sorts of creative subjects. I have a 1st class BA (Hons), an MFA and Ph.D in Fine Art Practice. I’m currently a visiting scholar at the Oxford Centre for Life Writing, Wolfson College, Oxford.

Ok, I’m interested, what do I have to do?

Well, you can go to the “Join Me” section and follow the instructions to register for Pencil Post, or you can join the short course mailing list, below. Enter the message ‘short course mailing list’ in the message box. That way you’ll receive information about new courses as soon as they go live on my website.* A standard 6-week short course is £46. You can upgrade to a premium short course for an extra £45 and receive one hour of personal tutorials. (There are limited places for tutorials, but no limit to registrations for the online courses.)

*I won’t send you information on any other subject. Only my short courses.

“So far all the content has been great – I have read the articles and watched the first videos and am really looking forward to starting on the activities.” 

A happy Pencil Post person
