Jim is a writer, educator, and support worker. His published work includes: Upon Arrival, Drop Your Cool (2014), Boy (2015), and ELSEWHERE (forthcoming). He has served as writer-in-residence for various schools and University settings, in which he curated, edited and published anthologies of creative writing by new writers, many of whom had previously never put pen to paper.
In 2019, he worked as a programme manager for UNESCO City of Literature, supporting writers of all ages and backgrounds to read and write for pleasure, running workshops and writing groups for adults and young people to develop their creative confidence.
Jim firmly believes in ‘leaving out no-one’ when it comes to accessing creativity, and that everyone has a story to tell. He cannot wait to hear yours.
