Postgraduate Creative Writing Menu
I completed my MA in Creative Writing at Lancaster and was delighted to be accepted as a PhD student, with Paul Farley as my supervisor, this is my fourth year, part time. I work as a senior lecturer at the University of Cumbria, in Carlisle and Lancaster where I teach secondary English PGCE and undergraduate literature and creative writing. I also teach creative writing for the Open University. I live in the Eden Valley in Cumbria with my husband, daughter and dog.
Obviously, with Paul as a supervisor, my PhD focus is poetry. I am interested in notions of borders, Englishness/Britishness and identity (as well as how this is manifested through poetic form). This year, the aim of the PhD is achieving a sharper focus (I hope) through linking issues surrounding my own writing to an analysis of the work of Edward Thomas, with specific reference to nationality and concepts of borders. This literary analysis will hopefully help to shape my reflective commentary as well has having an impact on my own poetry.
