Welcome

After being able to comfortably refer to myself as a writer for the past couple of years, I’ve finally decided to make this little home for myself online to share my work with the world out there…

On this page you can find links to my short stories and poems, my theatre work, the various creative projects I’ve been involved with, and the writing services I offer, so feel free to browse around and find out more.

This month:

  • A short play of mine will be performed as part of Aberdeen Performing Art's "Black Gold"-themed scratch night at The Lemon Tree on Sunday 12 April from 7.30pm. Book tickets here.

  • I’ve been selected to take part in Aberdeen’s first Scrapyard theatre event from Saturday 18 April to Friday 1 May in The Lemon Tree. This collaborative theatre process will culminate in performances of 'scraps' of theatre devised across the fortnight. Book tickets for the final show on May 1st here.

  • On Wednesday 29 April, I’ll be running two writing workshops for Aberdeen City Libraries as part of their WW1 ‘Read and Remember’ campaign.

  • Issue 13 of Pushing Out the Boat will be released which features one of my short stories, as well as poems I was lucky enough to read and select as a member of the Poetry Panel.

  • The 2015 Aberdeen May Festival programme will be launched, which includes several events I’m involved with such as the Write Aberdeen - Write Regensburg project and my play, A Mother's Journey, written in conjunction with the global research initiative, IMMPACT.

I aim to post about all of these events in coming weeks, as well as other updates, so check back regularly.
