Personal profile

Personal Statement

I joined Strathclyde as a Lecturer in French Studies in 1990 and am currently Professor of Poetry and Creative Writing in the School of Humanities. I head up the creative writing unit within the school and teach on the popular BA in Journalism and Creative Writing and the M.Res in Creative Writing. I am mainly a poet to trade and have published five collections to date, the last three with Carcanet Press. I've also published widely in the fields of French literature, Translation Studies and Scottish Literature. Currently I have a particular interest in ekphrastic poetry (poetry that responds to the visual arts) and organised an international conference on the subject in 2013 along with various outreach projects.
