Lecturer, Writer, and Poet in Exeter, United Kingdom
I am a lecturer, poet and writing tutor. I work in teacher and medical education at the University of Exeter.
My anthology Lifesaving Poems was published by Bloodaxe Books in 2015.
In 2012 I published Riddance (Worple Press), a collection of poems, and Love for Now (Impress Books), a memoir, about my experience of cancer.
My most recent books are Deck Shoes (Impress Books, 2019), a book of prose memoir and criticism, and The Afterlife (Worple Press, 2019).
In June 2023 I will publish The Wind and the Rain, my sixth collection of poems, with Blue Diode Publishing.
My current research project, with Sue Dymoke from Nottingham Trent University and funded by the Foyle Foundation, is Young Poets' Stories: https://youngpoetsstories.com/.
