I have written mostly for theatre and other forms of play, exploring environmental and social change through dramatic narrative. My work stems from a passionate belief in the power of our shared imaginations. I am interested in how we feel, understand and identify with the world around us.

Forms and Genres:

Scriptwriting, for place-based outdoor theatre, radio and young people

Narrative non-fiction, nature writing and eco-criticism

Children’s fiction

Educational resources

Songwriting, libretti and sound art

Collective writing processes
