Sea Stories: The Dance for Existence (Blue Ocean Institute, 2008)

I’ve worked with Resonance FM via The Mustard Club, for The Gilded Vectors of Disease radio series, and lent my voice to guided walks for the Sick City Project.

I’ve enjoyed spending time as a visiting researcher at The ESRC Genomics Forum and Poet-in-Residence at The Whipple Museum of the History of Science.

I run writing workshops. Topics include “how to write historical fiction” for the Jane Austen Festival, and “object lessons” for an array of age groups.

‘We really appreciated the time you spent with us, and the feedback from the students was extremely positive. A lot of the students produced sonnets after your workshops as well as writing some lovely thank you notes…You really inspired the students you worked with.’ – JFS School, London.
