I am the Manager of the Manchester Writing School at Manchester Met. Working closely with the Academic and Creative Directors, I have responsibility for the day-to-day running of the School, overseeing a range of Creative Writing courses, projects, events, systems and staff, and acting as primary contact for all of our campus-based and online Masters students. I also coordinate recruitment and admissions to our postgraduate programmes and short courses.
I am the Knowledge Exchange Coordinator and Marketing & Communications Lead for the Department of English, which involves developing and delivering impact and income generating projects, and social media and publicity management.
Much of my work is outward-facing. I engage with external organisations and public audiences to create showcase opportunities and ensure our work has a presence and impact in the world beyond the university.
