For several years I worked as a copywriter at a large integrated agency in Sheffield, Jaywing, working with major brands in education, finance, travel and the cultural sector. I've written and edited copy for social media, print, radio and TV – crafting the language behind some award-winning campaigns.
I write reviews and essays on literature, films and contemporary art and culture for Corridor8, thisistomorrow, The Double Negative, The Cleveland Review of Books and more.
I've published poetry and creative writing with Ache Magazine, Route57 and Pariah Press. In 2020 I was awarded the The Anthony Burgess / Observer Prize for Arts Journalism and named a New Poet by The Poetry Business with a pamphlet forthcoming in 2021.
I have a BA in English Literature from The University of Sheffield and an MA in Writing at the Royal College of Art, London, where I co-edited the student newspaper The Pluralist.
