As a writer, I never know what to expect from one day to the next! 

Here are some recent highlights: 

I was an editorial volunteer at the Tokyo Paralympics in my first foray into sports writing. 

Reading a poem at the inauguration dinner for Queen's University Belfast's first female chancellor, Hillary Clinton. 

Here, I'm on a panel talking about Northern Ireland twenty years from now at the British Council Literature Seminar in Berlin. 

A quick Dublin day trip to record a podcast with the Museum of Literature Ireland. You can listen to this here

I loved being writer-in-residence at Belfast Book Festival where I printed a new poem into Braille using my 3D printer.

My first time live from the RTE studio on Arena to help celebrate Culture Night where Gold Light Shining was part of the Arts Council Book Gifting project on trains and buses!
