Other Writing
I currently write book reviews for Starburst Science Fiction Magazine. I have written for various publications including: Ethical Consumer (Climate Change page), Wild Times – the RSPB Children’s Magazine (‘Springtime Singtime’), D+C Journal (‘Vague, Voluntary and Unenforceable: The Global Compact’), and Corporate Watch (various pieces around corporate power, public services privatisation, and gold mining). I have also written song lyrics for Vanessa Lewis, a singer-songwriter based in Bath, UK.
