I’ve written for blogs, websites, personal creative writing ventures, newsletters, project reports, funding bids and peer review for academic publications (Alexandrine Press, Routledge, Sage, Geographical Association).
In academic circles, the published work list matters. For those of you who don’t need such things, skip this list below.
Currently I’m working, with colleagues from my previous project, finishing the Spatial Design with Children book below.
For light-hearted divertissement, see The Journal of Imaginary Research, vol. 1., collection of academic conjurations.
