A writer, researcher and naturalist who works on cross-artform, poetry-dance and multi-disciplinary pieces and writes poetic-studies of species in-situ, sharing compassion and attentiveness to the environment.
I am a writer, researcher, editor and naturalist. My most recent chapbook, Field Notes, was a Bestseller for two years running with The LRB Bookshop, was featured on BBC Radio 4’s Front Row and was an Irish Times Book of the Year.
I'm a Lecturer on the Engaged Ecology Masters at Schumacher College and was one of the judges for the 2022 Ginkgo Prize, the biggest Ecopoetry prize in the world; I was also editor of environmental, feminist publisher, Hazel Press and am doing a practice-led PhD on Empathy, Ecology and Plein Air Poetry at Manchester Metropolitan University. I work on cross-artform, poetry-dance and multi-disciplinary pieces that tour the UK and collaborate with dancers, choreographers and conservationists.
I have been Writer-in-Residence at Cambridge Conservation Initiative, The Wordsworth Trust, and Wealden Literary festival and my poetry often explores our connection with water and the natural world.
I write poetic-studies of different species in-situ, directly from life, often underwater, and aim for these poems to share a sense of compassion and attentiveness to the environment.
