The Dream Introduction Agency

There's a question I'm sometimes asked, which I find very hard to answer - 

Why do I teach? 

I generally ramble my way through a series of reasons, like giving something back to society, seeing people fulfil their potential, exploring the art of writing and journalism...

But I never seem to quite nail it. 

This morning, in one little Tweet, it was all cleared up, sweet and simple. 


An author who I taught at the Winchester Writers' Festival, a fair while ago, got in touch to say he was about to be published for the first time...

And he had acknowledged me in his book - 


That's why teach.

It's like running a dream introduction agency. 

Hello, person. Hello, your dream.

Now let me introduce you - sit back and watch your relationship develop - until you dance through the stars together.
