For the past twenty-five years I have worked as a senior arts administrator, writer and editor in the literature and new writing sectors in the UK and the US. Organisations I have worked for as an employee and on a free-lance basis include: the University of East Anglia, the Writers Centre Norwich, the Arts Council, the Arvon Foundation, the BBC, Manhattan Theatre Club, Channel Four, Self (Condé Nast), among others. I have written drama, short stories, novels and magazine features. I have undergraduate and post-graduate degrees in literature and journalism from Vassar University (New York), University College (Cardiff); and an MA from the University of East Anglia (Norwich) in ‘Writing the Modern World.’
I have established and sat on boards of not-for-profit organisations.
I am an accredited coach for writers through a training programme developed by Relational Dynamics Coaching and run by the National Organisation for Writers in Education (NAWE) in partnership with the Arvon Foundation.
