Tamar has been teaching poetry and prose writing since 1997. In that time, she has tutored both beginning and established writers (particularly poets and fiction writers working on first books). She has taught for academic institutions, such as Birkbeck College, Middlesex University, Oxford University Department for Continuing Education and Oxford Brookes, and for adult educational organisations such as Spread the Word, Morley College and the Poetry School. She has run residential courses in Spain, Crete and France, and has led a number of site-specific writing workshops in historical buildings and locations in London, including Sir John Soane’s Museum, Brompton Cemetery, the Old Operating Theatre, the Geffrye Museum and the Foundling Museum. She has also offered workshops and courses investigating the link between poetry and visual art in museums and galleries such as Kettle’s Yard and the Fitzwilliam (both in Cambridge), Tate Liverpool, mima, Hayward Gallery, the Royal Academy, Somerset House and the National Gallery.
She is currently a Visiting Guest Lecturer at Newcastle University, where she teaches on the Newcastle / Poetry School MA in Writing Poetry: https://www.ncl.ac.uk/postgraduate/courses/degrees/writing-poetry-ma/#profile
