____________________________________________


Jay's performances are unique and powerfully engaging.
She performs many poems from memory.
"Talented!"
Response to readings of her new prose-poetry has
been remarkably positive.
"Rich", "Innovative", "Assured",
Universal", "Inspired".

Her workshops are very effective whether with adults
or children, and she brings elements of drama, art,
music, and storytelling, into her work in schools.
"A generous teacher."


Jay grew up in the Drakensberg mountain region of Natal,
South Africa, apart from short spells in England and Ireland.
She worked & studied in Cape Town,
then travelled for several years on a yacht which her
family built in their back yard.

Her book, Following Father (Ure Group Press,

draws on these experiences.

Poetry Workshops in Schools cost 175 per day or 300 for two days

You can pay for bookings here
or pay by cheque to 'J Woodman'
One to One sessions can be spread out over a wider period
especially if you only have a few individuals who would benefit from several sessions.
