What I do:
From September 2023 to March 2024 I'm on a partial sabbatical. I am reducing my hours to one day per week and will focus on commissioning and editing the PTC's list of incredible dual-language poetry collections. Please feel free to contact me about them, but for anything else please contact my cover Ellen McAteer.
