I have a background in academic writing, research and teaching. I have extensive experience of providing writing advice and support to Universities across the UK. I can help you to develop a publication strategy and work with you as you write papers and grant proposals. Alternatively I can just provide a supportive and enabling environment where you have space and time to write. In have an academic interest in wellbeing and my most recent papers are Developing academic wellbeing through writing retreats in Journal of Further and Higher Education. https://doi.org/10.1080/0309877X.2020.1812549 and The contribution of community events to social sustainability in local neighbourhoods in Journal of Sustainable Tourism. https://doi.org/10.1080/09669582.2020.1808664.
In addition to my academic work I deliver creative writing and yoga workshops with a focus on wellbeing (clients include Peabody Trust and University of Westminster) .
I love to write short stories and have been shortlisted and longlisted in International and UK writing competitions. I am finalising a draft of a creative non-fiction book which will be published in 2023. You can access recent shortlisted and longlisted creative writing on my blog here.
