Her poems have appeared in the magazines Scree, Textualities, New Writing Dundee, InterLitQ, Tender: A Quarterly Journal Made By Women, DURA: Dundee University Review of the Arts, Gutter, Blackbox Manifold, Raum, Stand, Spam, Adjacent Pineapple, and Sch… The Journal of the Kurt Schwitters Society; and in the weird folds: everyday poems from the anthropocene, edited by Maria Sledmere and Rhian Williams (Dostoyevsky Wannabe, 2020), The Hunterian Museum Poems: a History of the World in Objects and Poems From the Collection of The Hunterian at the University of Glasgow, ed.

Her pamphlet Border Thoughts (Sufficient Place / Leamington Books, 2014) is ‘a little theatrical box of spectacle and light […] the living underworld of Brecht’s Threepenny Opera translated into raucous girlish post-war wayward ways’ (Lisa Jeschke, Hix Eros 6). SEKXPHRASTIKS (Dostoevsky Wannabe, 2021) is her first full length poetry collection. She is also a General Editor of the Cambridge Edition of the Works of Virginia Woolf and publishes widely on Woolf, modernism and the avant-garde.

Creative Conversations is funded by the Ferguson Bequest. Professor Thomas Ferguson (1900-1977), Henry Mechan Chair of Public Health (1944-64), bequeathed his estate to the University, with the instruction that the money should be used to foster the social side of University life.
