Literature without barriers

Woody River is a literature tutor who designs and delivers literature courses, public lectures and literary group holidays.

Based in Somerset, I am committed to encouraging greater awareness and understanding of British, American and world literature.

I strongly believe in providing access to literature without barriers due to language, education, geography or culture. Through my inclusive and varied approach to teaching, I have gained a reputation for providing high quality, research-based services which are delivered with enthusiasm and creativity, and are designed to challenge, to inspire and to be fun.


My services include:

Course design
Tutoring - course delivery
Sixth form enrichment workshops
Lectures and public talks
Literary holidays

Courses and enrichment workshops are available in a variety of formats and durations,
and I am happy to provide bespoke versions, so please get in touch with me to discuss
your requirements.

There are so many ways to experience and enjoy literature! Through reading literature,
you enhance your understanding of the world around you. By sharing responses to
literature with other people, you make new friends and develop your knowledge of a
particular story or poem. Through exploring the places which inspired great works of
literature, you enhance your appreciation of those texts while improving your health
and fitness at the same time.
