Writing and Training 

Over the years Annmarie has gained experience in content creation, social media moderation  and course facilitation. Add that to the writing and it has given her opportunity to contribute to and support a number of individuals and groups. If you're looking for a speaker, teacher, facilitator, host or writer, she may just be who you need.  

  • Course facilitation (Beginners Creative Writing, Social Media for Beginners, Social Media for Writers)

  • Social Media moderation (Facebook page, Twitter etc)

  • Content creation and editing

But don't just take her word for it - here's what others have said

I attended Annmarie's Social Media workshopy and loved every minute. She was engaging, clear and taught me more in an hour than I've learned in a lifetime. The woman was born to teach and I'd attend another of her sessions in a heartbeat.

I could listen to Annmarie all day. She's accessible, clear and knowledgeable and tailors information to the needs of the audience. She's also funny which, for me, is a big plus. Hire her, and let her unravel some SM mysteries for you.

'The training I did with Annmarie was enormously useful, practical and wise.  It gave me confidence, enabling me to have a go at things and not worry if they didn't work out. It showed me how to develop a posting schedule which was achievable while still having a life! Highly recommended. '

​Annmarie Miles served as a columnist for VOX magazine since the earliest days of our adventure in publishing. 

Annmarie's unique voice and light touch have made her a huge favourite with readers. She has the rare ability to combine comedy and tragedy, the profound and the pragmatic and to do so concisely. . I heartily recommend and commend her as a writer 

Ruth Garvey-Williams
 Editor of VOX Magazine

Annmarie ran a beginner's creative writing course in Lucan Library. She began with a room of strangers and created a supportive and determined group of creative writers - all of whom are keen to continue writing.
Much of this is due to Annmarie's approach and support,

"Annmarie has an enthusiastic and entertaining personality. She is humorous and engaging; whether teaching, writing or talking about writing - it was such an enjoyable experience."

"Annmarie has a special talent not only in writing but in the way she runs a group!!"
