I am a writer based in North Staffordshire, England.
My articles have featured in a range of publications including the Guardian, Mslexia, Dalesman, Cumbria, Disability Now, Soul & Spirit and SEN and my short stories for children have appeared in Ireland’s Own and Aquila magazines. My short story “Two weeks after the world ended” was long listed for the Flash 500 competition. I have a wide variety of interests when it comes to choosing what to write about, but some of my specialities are disability, mental health, and travel.
I have also researched and produced case studies as part of the evaluation of Appetite, an Arts Council England funded arts programme, and produced copy for Staffordshire University’s booklet on transitioning to higher education for disabled students. Take a look at my portfolio for examples of my work. As well as features and short story writing, I am working on a novel.
I graduated from Staffordshire University in 2013 with a BA (Hons) Creative Writing and am currently studying for a Master’s degree in the Teaching and Practice of Creative Writing. I have facilitated creative writing workshops in a range of settings in the community and for undergraduate students, and am always interested in new opportunities – get in touch if you’re interested in working with me.
