Creative Bridges 2023

Creative Bridges was an online conference connecting research and practice in the field of writing for wellbeing.

In 2023, I was Chair of the conference commitee.I helped support and guide the team to deliver another successful conference online!

Writing for Wellbeing

For 7 years, I was coordinator of Lapidus International, the writing for wellbeing community.In this time, I have coordinated 2 international conferences, worked as a researcher on two bid-funded projects, hosted a range of off-and-online events, helped edit a magazine, been trained as a Action Learning Set facilitator, and answered a billion emails (that's a close estimate, anyway).

Writer, Poet, Llama enthusiast

I've been writing, both as a ghostwriter and under my own name, for 10 years.Stories of adventure and excitement. Thought-provoking tales. Poetry that rhymes (but not all the... times).
Not always entirely serious.
Not always entirely not-serious.

Podcaster and Performer

I'm a performer at heart. Involved in musical theatre from a young age, I love nothing more than telling an engaging story to an audience.This urge to perform, linked with my love of tech, has led me to start developing mulitple podcasts on a range of subjects, both serious and comedic.
