About

I am a freelance journalist and poet.  I was awarded an MA in Writing from Sheffield Hallam University, and am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. As a journalist I specialise in the arts, culture and travel.  My freelance features have been published in national and international magazines, including The Yorkshire Post Magazine, easyJet Traveller, Country Walking, Fortean Times and Britain. Poems have appeared in leading journals and literary magazines including Magma, Mslexia, Staple, Other Poetry, Haiku Quarterly, DreamCatcher and The Rockvale Review.  In 2017 I was selected by Eyewear as one of their Best New British and Irish Poets. I have managed and performed events for Off The Shelf Festival and The University of Sheffield’s Festival of the Mind. Apus,  chapbook of poems inspired by the life of Frida Kahlo, was published by The Red Ceilings Press in 2020. I was a key player in the creation of a magazine pathway on the BA (Hons) Journalism, and in the accreditation of the course by the Professional Publishers' Association.
