Nature Writing in Wales is a Creative & Critical Writing PhD sketchbook. It offers academic, cartographical and anecdotal explorations into the ecological and cultural heart of West Wales (2015-16).
The Narrowboat Blog is a diarist's account of my year spent living aboard a narrowboat and the waterways and canals of London (2013-2014). As well as offering practical advice and guidance about life on water it is also a story about trying to find peace in a modern urban setting and the poetry, difficulty and beauty of living 'off grid'.
Letters from Iceland is a modern rephrasing of Auden and MacNeice's travel classic. Merging prose and poetry it conveys the beauty and strangeness of the country it takes as its focus during a four-month period of voluntary work (2015).
Alternatively please visit Time Signatures. Timesignatures is my most abstract and hidden online work. It’s medium is travel writing, though, as I hope you will see, it is much more than the average travel blog. It is an attempt to render experience as it really is: multi-faceted, filtered through writing and communication, adopting different registers and adapted to the usages of different audiences. It’s basic premise is that we are constituted through and by communication, in my case, and in the case of this solo trip, mainly through writing. The writing was not ancillary to the trip undertaken in 2011, or a symptom of it. To all intents and purposes, especially now, as the precise details fade from my mind – the writing was the trip. It is my journey.
