Elise taught this week with positive psychologist Vanessa King and guest author Beth Kempton in May 2019.
Arvon's first ever 'Popular Non-Fiction' week. Elise taught with editor Emily Robertson and guest author Oliver Kamm at The Hurst in summer, 2018.
Elise developed the idea of 'Suitcase Stories' (Fiction, Non-Fiction & Life Writing) with Nick Barlay, before proposing it as a course to Arvon. She taught with Nick at Lumb Bank in 2013 (guest Haifa Zangana), with Aaamer Hussein at Totleigh Barton in 2015 (guest Anne Aylor), and again with Aamer at Lumb Bank in 2017, with guest Fadia Faqir.
