August was swallowed up by urgency and travel. I returned to Brittany the first half of August when my dad was rushed into hospital. It's been one of those heavy-on-funerals years so I didn't want to take any chances. This happily resolved itself with a quintuple bypas...

I've been a bit quiet on this site of late, but it's not for a lack of things happening, I promise!

Rather than list the ways in which I've been busy, I thought I'd share a rough picture of a polaroid taken this afternoon of a Kervadol dolmen. This is the site that insp...

I don’t know about you, but December doesn’t seem to be showing signs of slowing down! I’ve just completed my third poetry course for the Poetry School, this time on astronomy, and loved the poems my students came up with. You can see two of them up on Cam...

I am finding it very difficult to summarize August, but nevertheless feel that I should attempt it, not just for myself, but for all the lovely people who helped me raise the funds to go in the first place. I knew it'd be an adventure, I knew I'd find it inspiring, and...

In five days I will be off to Aberdeen, and then Shetland, to join the Clipperton Project for a month-long residency sailing around Shetland and Orkney. It's going to take me three days to get there, so quite an epic journey, but I'm sure it will be completely worth it...

Here is a link to my latest blogs over at Passle


Time to get excited about StAnza

There's still a few weeks ago but I am already buzzing about attending StAnza Festival in St Andrews this year. I have heard so many good echoes about it over the years: from the quali...

I haven't updated this blog in a while and thought I should give a quick update on what has been happening recently...


I performed my show in Oxford earlier in January and it was sold out! It was definitely one of my favourite performances, the audience was really...
