I am delighted to have edited The Cambridge History of Travel Writing with Professor Nandini Das. Published early in 2019, the volume consists of 36 chapters by international contributors. More than two thousand years of travel writing are discussed in it, as well as several different linguistic traditions. Full details can be found here.
After reading from and discussing it at a symposium at the University of Eastern Finland, I was delighted to launch my debut poetry pamphlet, Touching Distance, at Five Leaves Books, Nottingham, on November 8th, 2017. The pamphlet was commissioned as part of Five Leaves' fourth birthday celebrations, and I was very pleased to read with Zosia Kuczyńska and Padraig Regan, who both have fine pamphlets out with the Emma Press. Thank you to those who made it possible, to friends, colleagues (current and former) and students who came along, and to those who purchased the pamphlet on the night or subsequently. Among future readings are ones at Nottingham Trent University and at the University of Mainz, both in February 2018.
