Kirsty works with stories, telling her own, and helping others tell theirs. Each year, she speaks to thousands of students, inviting them to create, not just consume, and choose action over distraction.

With that in mind, Kirsty is sharing her knowledge in online courses and workshops for students, based on her ten years of experience teaching story and writing.
They are fun, fast and get results.
