What I'm doing (updated 22/11/17)

I'm currently focusing on the tanka project - sharing tankas every day on the tanka project instagram feed. I'm also writing and rewriting other poems, check out the Poetry tab for where those get published and when (although you can also get some free on this website).

One of my Sci-Fi short stories (there aren't many - I get too bogged down in world building) is going into a time capsule at North Ayrshire Heritage Centre, so if you hang on about 100 years you'll be able to read it when it's a historical drama!

I write a regular column for Scotland 4 Kids


From time to time I write catch up posts under What I'm Writing to keep you up to date, and you can get more information on those, although some of it shall remain secret. For now...



Sharing our poetry in Robert Burns' kitchen! As you do!

I took part in Museums at Night 2016, where I joined up with fellow poets Katharine Macfarlane, Rosie Mapplebeck, and Jane Overton to entertain a very lovely audience (and each other) in Robert Burns' very own kitchen.
