I am a writer and editor with interests in literature, art, film, intersectional feminism and social justice. Born and raised in Leeds, I worked in Paris for a short period and am now based in London.
For five years I worked in publishing, commissioning visual culture books with a radical edge. My titles included the recently released Roots and Culture: Cultural Politics in the Making of Black Britain by Eddie Chambers, Political Animals: The New Feminist Cinema by Sophie Mayer, Queering Post-Black Art: Transforming African-American Identity After Civil Rights by Derek Conrad Murray and Other Cinemas: Politics, Culture and Experimental Film in the 1970s, edited by Sue Clayton and Laura Mulvey. I also established an artists’ moving image and experimental film list. I am currently Deputy Editor at RA Magazine and an editorial director at the fledgling micro publisher, 3 of Cups Press.
As well as editing, I write on a freelance basis for publications including frieze, The White Review and Sight & Sound. If you’d like to discuss commissions or other projects, please do get in touch by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
