Research interests

My doctoral research focused on the relationship between poetry and agriculture in Britian and Ireland in the late-twentieth century and beyond, paying particular attention to the survival of the georgic mode in the work of three major poets: Seamus Heaney, Ted Hughes and Alice Oswald.

My poetry has been published in numerous print and online magazines and has been broadcast of Radio 4. My debut pamphlet-length collection, Handing (Two Rivers Press), was published in July 2018.

I am a member of the board for the Bristol Poetry Institute.
