I teach playwriting and radio drama writing to undergraduate and postgraduate students at the University of Essex. Alongside this, I am researching for a PhD in Playwriting and Climate Change.


I have worked on a wide variety of literature and writer development projects.


Until 2018, I was a freelance arts marketing consultant, advising clients throughout the East of England and beyond on all aspects of communications, audience development and strategic marketing planning.

Hey @tracey_thorn - your @NewStatesman piece about your youngest fledging the nest reduced me to tears. Such fine, thought provoking, heartfelt prose.

Delighted to announce I'm joining the Suffolk Book League @SuffolkBookTalk committee. Next author event coming up (16 Sep, @Ips_Institute ) is the writer and academic @RebeccaStott64

In case you missed them, here are the six wonderful shortlisted books 2019 featuring East Anglia. ‘Devoured’ was the winner, ‘The Wound Register’ was runner up & ‘All Among The Barley’ was Readers’ Choice. Very well done to all. ⁦@Ips_Institute⁩ ⁦@PrizeNewAngle⁩
