Portfolio

Fiction Writing:

My print publications include fiction appearances in Cheval 13 (Terry Hetherington Award Anthology 2020), Heartland (PENfro Prize anthology 2019), MANY: The 2020 Manchester Anthology and Lucent Dreaming, Issue 9 (April 2021).

In June 2021 I was joint-winner of the 18-25 category of the New Welsh Awards, with my creative essay ‘Return to Water’ (forthcoming in New Welsh Reader, Issue 128)

I also have a story published with Porridge Magazine, Foxglove, which quickly became on of their most popular pieces and featured in their #InternationalWomensDay 8 Posts by Inspiring Women.

Articles, Reviews and Non Fiction:

I have written a number of reviews and pieces for Wales Arts Review, including two of their Best Reviews of 2019, as well as for The Manchester Review, Gwales, The F Word Magazine – and Ed Fringe Review, where I was also Editor in 2018.

I was recently commissioned by the British Council to write a series of pieces about their projects and partners in the arts.

My latest essay, ‘My Skin is a Silver Lining’ was published by Santes Dwynwen Magazine (April 2021), and abridged in audio for Litro Magazine, where it was an editor’s pick.

Podcasting:

In 2020 I created The Podcast for New Writing – a series of discussions with students and authors at Manchester’s Centre for New Writing. Having pitched the project to the Centre I was then commissioned to produce and present the series, which received excellent response.

I’m currently producing The Parthian Podcast. The first series, as featured in The Bookseller, shines a light on queer Welsh writing, and can be found in all the usual streaming places.

I also have an interest in audio essays and creative writing – I recently recorded an abridged version of my piece ‘My Skin is a Silver Lining’ for Litro Magazine, which was featured as an editor’s pick (April 2021).

Publishing

As Reading Engagement Editor for Parthian Books, I run a number of projects. This year I placed a heavy focus on adapting our launch process to the pandemic and holding all events online, as well as growing our digital presence. I also specialise in managing anthologies into print, most notably the recent Just So You Know anthology, and edit the new Talking Translation interview series for 2021. This summer I’m leading our new audiobook list, which includes an exciting collaboration with a theatre company in Wales…

As Publishing Manager for the 2020 Manchester Anthology, alongside organising the production of the book to new and more professional specification, I also ran the digital launch.
