About

I am a journalist and poet. I received an MA in Writing from Sheffield Hallam and I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. As a journalist, I specialise in the arts, culture and travel. My articles have appeared in The Yorkshire Post, easyjet Traveller and Britain and other national and international publications. I was key to the creation of a magazine pathway on the journalism degree and in the accreditation of the course by the industry body The Professional Publishers' Association. My poetry is published by leading journals and literary magazines including Magma, Mslexia, Staple, Other Poetry, Haiku Quarterly, The Reader and DreamCatcher. In 2017 I was selected by Eyewear as one of their Best New British and Irish Poets. In my capacity as a poet I specialise in collaborations with artists and I have organised exhibitions and performances for Off The Shelf Festival and The University of Sheffield's Festival of the Mind in addition to one-off self-generated events. Apus, a collection of poetry inspired by the life of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo was published by The Red Ceilings Press in 2020.
