Black Sky

I am writing a book about walking.

But it's not like most walking books. It doesn't feature an individual striding and thinking their way across a landscape on a journey of self-discovery. It is about struggling to move because of physical illness, and facing restrictions because of gendered violence. It's about the implicit class bias in a lot of writing about walking, and the figures who remain excluded and vulnerable because they don't have protection and power.  Through a deeper understanding of embodiment, I seek to unfold a radical and more inclusive way of being in nature.

Spelt columns

More people should know about Spelt magazine. It provide a platform for creative writers (prose and poetry) to explore nature, landscape, the natural world and the liminality of natural areas within the urban landscape. Plus, it focuses on creating a supportive infrastructure for writers who live outside of cities. The quality of work they publish is terrific, and I'm not just saying that because I had the privilege to be a columnist for them in 2022-23

About me

It's me. I don't photograph well.

Apparently if you can see a picture of me, you are more likely to think I am friendly, approachable, interesting, and likeable. I really want you to think I am all of those things. I try to be, but I think sometimes I fail at most of them.

Anyway, here I am.

PS This feels awkwardly like false advertising.
