Writing

I have been writing fiction and poetry since childhood, in recent years I’ve explored dystopian fiction, meta-fiction and satirical commentary. Since October 2021 I have been a mentor for a group of women on a therapeutic creative writing course run by Arkbound. I co-design the curriculum for the weekly sessions.

Pieces written for the community members I’ve worked with on the CityLife creative writing research project I manage are under my Community Engagement page. I have held roles at The Poetry Society, First Story, Free Word and English PEN, founding a student-led subgroup of the latter called UEL PEN in 2012. I hold a BA (Hons) in Creative Writing.
