I joined the Centre for New Writing at Manchester as a Lecturer in Creative Writing in 2017, having previously taught at the Universities of Sheffield and Sussex. Between 2012 and 2014, I was a Fellow at the ICI Berlin Institute for Cultural Inquiry. My work moves between fiction and forms of creative criticism and is broadly informed by interests in literary linguistics, urbanism and queer theory. My current creative project, 'Never Was', is an experiment in the possiblity of a novel without a world. I'm also working on a collection of short fictions and fictional criticism titled 'Numbers of Cruelty'.
