Writing

 

I write thoughtful pieces about culture, nature, local politics, community, place, travel and other things, and I'm available for freelance commissions, including essays and book reviews. A few of the publications I've written for:

Caught by the River - online nature/arts journal. 

Plough Magazine in the US - an award-winning international magazine of stories, ideas, and culture.

I'm a columnist at Spelt Magazine, which celebrates the rural experience.

Lots of book reviews for Geographical Magazine, including books by Robert Macfarlane, James Rebanks and Vandana Shiva.

I was a runner up in the National Geographic Traveller travel writing competition.

Resurgence & Ecologist Magazine - I used to be an Editor at Resurgence (which subsequently merged with The Ecologist). I now write occasional pieces, and am a Contributing Editor at the Ecologist website.

Dartmoor Magazine - I wrote a two-part series on the poets and stories of Dartmoor called 'The Land the Speaks'. 
 

I've also written for charity websites, blogs, and local newspapers. In 2018, I was selected to attend the Rural Writing Institute summer school, taught by bestselling authors James Rebanks and Kathryn Aalto. You can sign up for my newsletter here
