Current Project

Writing Rochdale

PhD project funded by Manchester Metropolitan University (Cheshire) that focusses on critical-creative responses to the literary geographies of Rochdale exploring how place is written and understood. The blog for this is: Writing Rochdale: Place Writing in a Greater Manchester Borough.

Past projects & partnerships:

Postcards from Preston

Between April - May 2012, I worked with They Eat Culture and Deafway, developing storytelling workshops with animateur Phillipa. These workshops were for British Sign Language users at Deafway to celebrate Preston Guild 2012. More about that project can be seen here: PrestonThreeTwenty.

Action for Sustainable Living (AfSL)

I delivered workshops on sustainable living for primary schools in Greater Manchester. In partnership with AfSL and Creative Partnerships, I ran creative writing sessions for children to explore their own environmental concerns in a Stockport primary school. This project culminated in the children writing their own film on energy saving - with monsters and their minions vanquished by the Energy Savers!
