I'm a poet who is interested in collaborations with artists across different media, artists books, surrealism, science, myth, and nature, among many other things. I can offer readings, residencies, workshops, seminars, projects and mentorship, and I'm happy to work with or for anyone with an interest in writing.
I have taught many adult education courses in the past, have mentored individual poets, and I am currently teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students at the University of Edinburgh. I'm very flexible about subject matter and approach. I worked on the Refugee Survival Trust's Making it Home project with female refugees and asylum seekers in Glasgow, and am keen to continue working with different communities to enhance engagement with literature. I am a member of the Edinburgh-based Shore Poets, a cooperative organisation that produces monthly events combining poetry and music.
