Previously Editorial Manager at Black Dog Publishing for two years, I am currently enjoying working for myself as a freelance writer and editor based in London. Work published on this website represents completed projects and published work. Articles have been published in PARSE Journal, JAWS (Journal of Arts Writing by Students), T-R-E-M-O-R-S Live, Bellyflop Magazine, Allotrope Editions, this is tomorrow, New Wolf Magazine and jotta.
Graduating from the Critical Writing in Art and Design MA programme at the Royal College of Art in 2014, my research interest include the relationship of the arts to the concept of ‘work’, D.I.Y culture, the development of cultural policy and its focus on social instrumentalism, and the debate surrounding ‘cultural value’ in relation to the ethos of arts organisations and artists as organisers. A selection of written work produced during my MA course can be viewed here. An article representing a major research project entitled ‘Valuing the Arts: Precarity, Punks and the Ploughshare’ was published by PARSE Journal in 2015 and can be read here.
