I’m a writer and writing teacher from New Zealand.
I grew up in Taranaki and live in the Manawatu.
My second book, Write to the Centre (2016) is published by Haunui Press. It’s a book about my lifelong habit of keeping a journal, with colourful excerpts from my own journal pages, and writing ideas. Read some reviews.
I publish essays, reviews and poems regularly in literary magazines and anthologies.
Some areas of interest are: nature writing, ecopoetics, permaculture, music, journaling, left-wing politics, community activism, environmentalism, poetry, food sovereignty, op-shopping/upcycling/resource-sharing, growing food, collaborative art, herbs, plant medicines, bonfires, community art, creative processes, yoga, meditation, tarot, season-based ritual, embodiment and somatics, empath survival skills. If you’d like to hire me to write about any of those things for your website or publication, get in touch!
