I am a writer based in North Staffordshire, England.
My articles have featured in a range of publications including the Guardian, Mslexia, Planet Mindful, Adventure Travel, Happiful, Cumbria, PosAbility, Soul & Spirit and SEN, and my short stories for children have appeared in Ireland’s Own and Aquila magazines. My short story “Full Moon Rise” was shortlisted for the Flash 500 award in 2019. Another short story, “Two weeks after the world ended”, was long listed for Flash 500 and then published by Ellipsis Zine. 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, wellbeing, and travel.
I researched and produced case studies as part of Staffordshire University’s 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.
In 2019 I worked as a copywriter for the University of Wolverhampton to produce several compelling case studies showcasing the work of the Aspire to HE widening participation project at the University.
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 in 2019 completed my 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.
