Writing & Broadcasting
Most of my writing in recent years has been about education, and much of my inspiration has come from Scandinavia. A few years ago I wrote a booklet about the Danish Free School Tradition and I am now working on a book about democratic and humane approaches to education.
I discovered my love of writing in the European Studies Department at UMIST. It was during this time at university that I became a regular contributor to Student Scene on BBC Radio Manchester.
From those early beginnings I went on to work for magazine programmes on national radio. Since then I have written articles about education and walking for several national newspapers and magazines, as well as leaflets and reports for business and the public sector.
My customer list has included: BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio Scotland, Tameside MBC, The Daily Express, AMMA Report, The Friend, The Independent, The Sign, Cycling Today, Rambling Today, Initiative, The Financial Times and The Education Heretics Press.
