Having mentored many writers as a dramaturg and teacher at Goldsmiths College, I first started to develop my own writing after setting up TouchedTheatre in 2009.  I think about writing through theatre making and I am interested in working within specific formal constraints. My writing has so far explored diverse specific forms including solo puppetry performance, musical, audio drama and verse.  I am particularly interested in observations of the natural world, of place and identity, and in writing as a Northerner.  I also write as a journalist for Total Theatre magazine.
