Her latest memoir Insomnia (2018) is an unsettling account of an everyday and yet deeply troubling state of lack and longing. She is senior commissioning editor at digital magazine Aeon and a consultant Fellow for the Royal Literary Fund. Along with two others she runs True North – an enterprise that works with academic writers to find the narrative and voice in their work.

This seminar is both practical and profound, giving students great insight into good  writing.
