2016: New Adventures

Do take a look at the new tab on my website, ‘Oxford Poet-in-Residence’, which I will update regularly after each visit to the Oxford University Museum of Natural History. I’m one of three poets-in-residence for the Museum’s ‘Visions of Nature’ season, which means each poet is welcome to explore the Museum’s archives and collections to his or her heart’s content, and write new poems about these treasures. We get to enjoy this for much of the year, and will round off the residency with public engagement activities in the autumn, and the launch of a new anthology of poetry towards the end of the year.

Keep an eye on the ‘essays’ tab on my website, which I update every time I have a new piece of writing published in The Lancet or elsewhere, including book, museum, and exhibition reviews.

I’m delighted to have secured a new job, in addition to continuing to write freelance pieces for The Lancet journals: This month (February 2016,) I’m going to begin a full-time office role as a production assistant for The Lancet! I’m absolutely delighted to become part of The Lancet team, and to formally contribute to the success of the best medical journal in the world.
