Job

Writer, Poet and Walking Artist

About me

I am a writer, poet and walking artist. My writing is mostly concerned with sense of place, environment, memory and childhood.

I teach creative writing, run workshops and organise events for writers of all ages and levels. I have mentored people through personal writing projects, and I tutor privately too. I love teaching and aim to facilitate each person I teach to be the very best they can be and to help them to achieve their aims- whether that is to write a novel, a collection of poems, or to pass their English Literature ‘A’ Level!

My writing has been widely published, including a pamphlet, clew, by Hesterglock Press in 2015, and a chap book, Villiers Path, by Sampson Low Ltd in 2017. My 2011 poetry map, Amniotic City, was featured in The Guardian, and my second map, Over the Fields, was mentioned in The Times Literary Supplement. One of my poems was nominated for a Forward Prize and a Pushcart Prize. I have performed poetry in many venues across the UK, including The Poetry Cafe, Somerset House (as part of the Walking Women festival), Free Word Centre and Rich Mix in London.

My current walking project, Tolworth Treasure and the Hogsmill Hum, is a walking and writing project with Alison Fure, a local ecologist and bat expert. We have been taking people for walks around the environs of where I live in Tolworth. One of these walks was recorded and will be part of a Radio 4 programme on walking women artists to be broadcast later this year.

I also work as an editor and copywriter, and have published several chapbooks on the Seethingography imprint via Sampson Low Ltd. I am a trained journalist and my work as a creative practitioner is taught as part of the Open University’s Creative Writing MA.
