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, 3:AM Magazine, The Double Negative, The Cleveland Review of Books, The Quietus and more.
I've published poetry and creative writing with Ache Magazine, Anthropocene and Blackbox Manifold. In 2020 I was awarded the The Anthony Burgess / Observer Prize for Arts Journalism and named a New Poet by The Poetry Business. I have appeared on Front Row as a guest critic.
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.
