I’ve led writing workshops for the IDLER Academy, Crisis UK, and Freedom from Torture. I currently tutor on the creative writing programme at Oxford University.


I also regularly mentor writers at all stages of their career. To find out more, please get in touch: helenlouisejukes@gmail.com

“Helen is a sensitive, thoughtful critic. She offers innovative solutions without intruding on the author’s own creative process. Helen has helped me with short fiction, novels, and nonfiction writing. She is a wonderful reader and supportive mentor.”

“I feel very lucky to have found Helen Jukes as my writing mentor. She is extremely insightful, and concentrates totally on the task in hand. She knows how to maintain the flow of communication as work progresses, keeps to schedule, and understands writers’ difficulties.”
