Lorna V: Writing • Teaching • Performing

I’m a creative explorer, thinker and doer. Mostly I’ve written, but I also love to inspire and guide new writers. As an emerging actor working on my first full length solo show, I know what it’s like to have a dream.

From journalism to theatre, blogs to books, digital to live presentations, academic to entertainment, I’m ignited and excited by deadlines and can adapt easily to different genres.

I’ve been writing and performing my work since 2014. Highlights include appearing at the Lion & Unicorn Kentish Town, Willesden Library Performance Space, Winchester Discovery Centre, Battersea Arts Centre and the Old Fire Station Arts Centre, Oxford. In April 2018 I will be previewing my first full length solo show at the Blue Elephant Theatre.

I discovered my interest in education through teaching on postgraduate journalism courses. It was quickly apparent that what gave me most satisfaction was guiding students to develop the mental skills required for a media career through understanding their dreams, purpose, and psychological make-up.  This led to developing my own workshops aimed at people of all ages and backgrounds who want to write.

Lorna wrote on my piece of homework ‘start the book!!’ -and two years later I became a bestselling published Hay House author! I’m so grateful for Lorna’s help on her course.
