I work with words for a living, to learn, and for fun. I walk in the gaps. Originally from Cheltenham, I recently moved back after 25 years in London, and am relearning the local landscape. Words for a living: editing and proofreading, formerly for the Guardian. Words to learn: student on Bath Spa's nature & travel writing MA course, 2021-23. Words for fun: prose and poetry with a strong sense of place and a touch of the eerie.
