Christina Thatcher fell in love with Wales while studying for a Creative Writing MA at Cardiff University. Now, as a postgraduate tutor and researcher, she is passionate about understanding how creative writing can improve the lives of vulnerable people. Christina keeps busy off campus too by delivering community workshops, facilitating the local ‘Roath Writers’ group, hosting open mic events, and more.
Some of her recent literary accomplishments have included being selected for Made in Roath's 'Moving Words' project alongside Gillian Clarke and Peter Finch, acting as the poetry judge for the national Cardiff Women's Aid Creative Writing Competition, and working as a guest poetry editor for Issue 28 of Dream Catcher Magazine.
As an American qualified teacher, Christina has experience leading creative writing workshops at the primary, secondary, and University level in both the USA and UK. She also has significant experience running poetry and fiction workshops for youth centres, art galleries, non-profit organizations, and other community venues.
Christina's poetry has recently been published in The London Magazine, Planet Magazine, and the Lampeter Review, among others.
