Introducing . . .
My works thread the strands of place, location and writing in new and curious ways. Sometimes these employ fresh new tech (Poetry Pin / Storywalks) other times just a book in a box (Lynmouth Pavilion - Poetry Box Project) Some works celebrate creative literacy (Coleridge Way - QR Code Poetry) others just for fun (Grass Labyrinths)
They may involve folk lore and traditional storytelling (Hidden Histories Secret Stories) or creative writing workshops (Storywalks workshops / Poetry Rambles - Lynmouth Pavilion)
And sometimes, just sometimes they manage to turn whole cities and landscapes into playgrounds for the word! (Exeter and Tarka Trail Poetry Pin)
Recent projects have partnered with Jackie Morris and Seven Fables (Number Seven Gallery) in Dulverton to create 'The Lost Words Storywalks trails and also new films for the Penguin Random House The Lost Spells international book launch. The lost spells is the was published 1st October 2020 and is the sister book to The Lost Words by Jackie Morris and Robert Macfarlane.
Additional 2020 works are England Coast Path Storywalks, a series of hidden history heritage trails, fusing folk lore, ecology and curious tales linked to the landscape, coast path and the location of each trail. Three new trails are currently in the pipeline and all are due for soft release in spring 2021.
2019 projects included Hydrophobic poetry with the Lorna Doone festivities, Peddling Poetry along the Tarka Trail with Beaford and Storywalks at The Museum of Somerset in Taunton and a grass labyrinths at locations across Somerset.
