The Edgelands

I am currently over on Substack with a publication called The Edgelands – experimental pieces that walk the edgelands between experiences, history, memory, imagination, and physical geographies. The narratives I want to read are marginal, not mainstream: the voices we don’t get to hear, the unrecorded and undiscovered stories of how people navigate/d life. I am using themes of placeness, dereliction, psychogeography, the othered and brutalised body, power systems, counter-mapping, belonging and community, and rural and urban walking – and stitching my own marginal memories together with the stories and wisdoms I find in the archives of great thinkers and collectors, and national and local archives.
