My writing has appeared in print, multimedia exhibits, poem films, dance videos, lyrics, pyrotechnical installations, on stage and as an improvised opera. I am a Hawthornden Fellow.
I collaborate with a musician, other writers and artists, perform my work, facilitate writing workshops, mentor other writers, and oversee writing projects. I have also participated in a residency with the Delfina Studio Trust in Spain.
Host was published by Waterloo Press in 2010. Since then I have produced three art booklets that combine poetry, illustration and form to present my newer work in beautiful and intimate ways. My artist’s booklet Lune (2013) was runner-up in the Sabotage Awards (2013) and featured in The Guardian Books Blog as an excellent example of the form. Speaking Salt Truth my second poetry collection is on its way…
I am available for readings, workshops, residencies and commissions, and would bring energy, authenticity and a sprinkle of humour to any event. I’m happy to discuss my fees without obligation on your part.
