Biography

I have been teaching at MMU since 2008 on courses such as Contemporary American Literature, 20th Century British Novel, Postwar to the Present, and History of Text Transmission. I have also taught creative writing courses such as Prose Workshop, Writing in Genres, and Writing Skills.

Outside of my academic writing, I have written professionally for the Daily Telegraph, Times Literary Supplement, Literary Review, New Statesman, and have edited the literary magazine Transmission.

My out of work interests primarily revolve around reading and writing (particularly fiction), but sometimes the book is closed long enough for me to indulge in activities including photography, walking, cinema-going and playing the odd video game.
