The Living Library

The Living Library is a project based on my experiences as a Writer-In-Residence at Huddersfield Library. The project includes live readings, workshops, blog posts and podcasts, all designed to inspire visits to your local library and reading for pleasure. See my Living Library page for more information.

PhD Support

PhDs are an emotional rollercoaster, but the books on 'how to do a PhD' don't tell you that. That's why I created a workshop that covers the Ups and Downs of PhD Research. You can view my PhD Rollercoaster (Prezi format) if you want an insight into my personal journey, as well as other resources I have designed to help students. See my PhD Support page for more information.


Inside Stories: life as a communications practitioner

Did you know that communication practitioners often struggle to find where they 'fit' into their organisation? My PhD research looked at how in-house communication teams spoke about their work. It revealed that they use a "discourse of dislocation" meaning that they struggle to find a 'fixed' location for their team within their organisation. See my Inside Stories research page for more information.

Book reviews

I am a book worm and write reviews and short stories. See my review page for a flavour of my creative writing.
