Influx Press will be publishing a collection of my short stories and prose in Spring next year. Please do read the recent post from the London-based independent publishers and treat yourself to a browse of their back catalogue, featuring Darran Anderson‘s Imaginary Cities, Linda Mannheim‘s Above Sugar Hill and Chimène Suleyman‘s poetry collection Outside Looking On.

There was a small announcement in The Bookseller (this William fellow sounds rather pleasant).

More soon.


Roles, Playing #3


Pleased to have worked with Prof. Adam Roberts this academic year, teaching Children’s Literature with brilliant third-year undergraduates at Royal Holloway, University of London.




Delighted to have been awarded my doctorate by Royal Holloway, University of London. Many thanks to my examiners Prof. Patricia Duncker and Dr. Richard Hamblyn, and to my supervisors Prof. Judith Hawley, Dr. Kristen Kreider and Prof. Andrew Motion for all of their encouragement, candour and patience along the way. My thesis Unclear Definitions: Investigating Dictionaries’ Fictitious Entries through Creative and Critical Writing will no doubt be a staple addition to bedside bookshelves up and down the country.


Roles, Playing #2


Proud to be part of the editorial board at Copy Press, the publishers of the Common Intellectual books (including a new edition of The Bound Man and other stories by Ilse Aichinger), the series Paraclete, the new Loop project series of work, and the curators of a dedicated Reader’s Union.

Roles, Playing #1


I am delighted to be working as Fiction Editor for 3:AM Magazine, commissioning and editing pieces for this fantastic and important site. I have long been an avid reader and proud contributor; I can’t wait to be of use, and attempt to prove some mettle on the other side of the submissions’ desk. Fiction, poetry, essays, reviews and interviews all available here.

Proud to finish this academic year as a Visiting Lecturer at Royal Holloway, University of London. It has been a privilege to read the stories and sketches of all the students who were in my seminar groups for both the Style and Structure and Fiction workshops, and I look forward to shoring up my bookshelves so that I might have room for all their future work.
