Hello, I’m editor of New Humanist - a magazine of ideas, science and culture that began publication in 1885, although I obviously haven’t been editor for that long - and a freelance writer and reporter who contributes to the Guardian and London Review of Books among others. I’m also the author of two books: Bloody Nasty People: The Rise of Britain’s Far Right (Verso, 2012), and Lights in the Distance: Exile and Refuge at the Borders of Europe (Picador, 2018).
Our book launch for TranScripts writers was a fantastic success with writers performing their work they produced during the project. It was held at the Museum of Liverpool as part of Liverpool Mental Health Consortium's festival.
During Liverpool Pride, writers from the TranScripts project also presented readings from their newest collaborative project TranScripts at the Headpsace Hangar.
This innovative 8 week writing project was delivered with individuals who identity as transgender with Marjorie Morgan, who’s recently been shortlisted for the prestigious Kenneth Branagh Award.
