Hello & Croeso 

 

I am currently writing about Alzheimer's, using the condition as a lens to explore what it is to be human, have memory, have mind.  Early drafts of my work have been highly commended in  The Rialto Pamphlet, LiveCanon Collection and Poetry Wales Pamphlet competitions. 

My single poems have recently been highly commended in The Bridport Prize, Fish, Live Canon, The PS & Hippocrates and published in: Stand, The Rialto, Envoi, & Mslexia.

Last summer I was offered a place at the Poetic Hydraulics seminar with Billy Collins at Stony Brook University (NY).

This Summer I am looking forward to being part of a writing symposium on Patmos with Cheryl Strayed.  

I am delighted to have joined the board of The National Centre for Creative Health as a trustee lobbying for creativity to be central to our lives and communities (read the recent All-Party Inquiry Report here).

Previously I have won the The Northern Writers Debut Prize for Poetry and I am also grateful to have received support from The Arts Council.
