What I do:
As Director, I'm responsible for running and leading the charity, reporting to our board of trustees, liaising with funders and supporters, and developing partnerships to keep the PTC flourishing well into the future. I also commission and edit the PTC's list of incredible bilingual poetry collections. If you are interested to work with us, be published by us, book us for an event, or be part of our story by becoming a PTC supporter, please feel free to email me!
