I am a London-based writer and workshop facilitator working online, live and in print. I'm interested in depicting the beauty of everyday life and of mapping landscapes through writing.
I run creative writing workshops for adults and young people, focusing on short stories, flash fiction and sharing work 'off the page.' In 2013, I have run workshops for the London Transport Museum, Spread the Word and London Borough of Havering.
I'm always keen to find new ways to share my writing and reach readers. My short stories have been performed, projected, published, abandoned on street corners, hidden under tables, left on park benches, slipped into paper scrolls and pasted onto bookmarks.
I've developed a series of digital projects including the fictional photoblog 5am London (2012-13) and Look up at the Sky (2011), exploring quiet, walking and writing in the city. Speak to Strangers (2009-10) was one hundred stories about random interactions with Londoners, published as a book in 2011.
I regularly read and talk about my work at venues across London and the UK. I have presented my work on BBC radio and at festivals including Latitude and the Venice Biennale. Most recently, I created a live writing project A View from Here (2013) and was writer in residence during the 2012 Olympic torch relay in Devon.
