Hello from the hopeful side of winter!
A quick little update on my latest writing endeavours:
This is a wonderful online publication that showcases young nature/wildlife writers and photographers. I thought it would make a great home for my thoughts on the Capital Ring, which is a 78-mile long walking circuit around the outskirts of London. This trail is split into fifteen sections, and over my two years in London, I’ve now managed to walk nine of them. I’ve been amazed at the convergence of urban and wild along these trails, which was what I wrote about. You can read it on page 18 of the magazine here.
I’m still blogging regularly for Dragonspace, a magical little shop on Granville Island in Vancouver that I used to work at. Their online store has really taken off, attracting visitors from all over the globe. I’m writing fortnightly about subjects like fairies, Pagan rituals, the power of burning sage, dragons in pop culture, and a few other mythical and metaphysical subjects. You can keep up with them here.
I’ve also been commissioned to write some children’s short stories for educational resources, and I’m really enjoying it. I forgot how fun and challenging writing for kids can be, but it definitely puts me in my element.
Nature and magic are fast becoming my writing specialities.
I’ll be on the hunt for more commissioned writing opportunities over the next few months, so please feel free to drop me a line if you have a project you think would be a good fit! (It doesn’t have to be about nature or magic – I’m also interested in culture, entertainment, history, travel and more!)
Until next time,
