I am an award-winning poet and non-fiction writer based in Fife, and have been giving readings and teaching creative writing and literature since 2010. My main interests are in poetry, environmental writing, and contemporary literature, but I have experience beyond these areas. I have worked with groups ranging from mid-primary school age to adults in their 80s, both in-person and online. These activities include readings at literary festivals and community events, guest readings and lectures for university groups, collaborations with artists and film-makers, one-to-one creative writing mentoring in a range of genres, leading creative outreach exercises for university research projects, facilitating community creative writing workshops and book groups, teaching writing skills to students with English as a second language and teaching creative writing by correspondence to prison inmates. I have also organised and taught residential literature courses for adults, in partnership with organisations including the Smithsonian Institution, the University of St Andrews and Michigan State University. I love engaging with diverse audiences to share my enthusiasm for literature, writing, and the world around us, and always work to make these subjects engaging, fun and accessible to people with a range of experiences and abilities.
