Hello!

Dawdling down dark paths, getting lost in tangled woods, leaping onto pavement cracks, then home again. 

Hi there, nice to meet you! I’m Jen a writer, crafter, & educator based in Calderdale. From 2014 – 2017 I was lucky enough to receive a PhD studentship to investigate Rochdale, you can read more about that on the project blog: WritingRochdale.wordpress.com.

I help out with two creative writing groups in Greater Manchester: Failsworth Writing Group & Touchstones Creative Writing Group in Rochdale (all welcome!).

The blog has bits of my own creative writing, ponderings, attempts at learning new things, and photography. I tend to find stories in all sorts of places – cities, towns, villages, treetop dwellings, drifting on the waterways. There will be a bit of sci-fi geekery from time to time too 😉

This website used to be one project – a wildlife inspired writing space – but it’s changed. (Although my favourite bit of feedback from when I ran outdoor family writing sessions is still this: “I liked writing stories because I want to be an author when I’m older”. Ace.)
