Samantha Walton is a writer and editor based in Bristol.

She has also written a study of the Scottish nature writer, Nan Shepherd - The Living World: Nan Shepherd and Environmental Thought (Bloomsbury 2020), a collection of poetry, Self Heal (Boiler House 2018), and a pamphlet of apocalypse poems, Bad Moon (Spam 2020).

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.
