Articles and Reviews:
I have also reviewed books for The Manchester Review, Gwales, The F Word Magazine – and Ed Fringe Review, where I was also Editor in 2018.
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 developing plans for a literary translation-focused podcast with Parthian Books, due to be release in summer/autumn 2021.
As an Editor at Parthian Books, I specialise in managing anthologies into print, most notably the recent Just So You Know anthology. I also recently managed the publication of Ward Nine: Coronavirus – a covid patient’s story of survival which I took on last-minute, and, owing to it’s important message, turned around at record speed of 5 weeks from submission to print.
As Parthian is a small press, my responsibilities also include publicity and marketing for books, as well as managing all social media. During this year, I have also taken on a larger events role, adapting our launching process to the Pandemic and holding all book events online.
As Publishing Manager for this year’s Manchester Anthology, alongside organising the production of the book to new and more professional specification, I also ran the digital launch.
