My name is Catherine and I’m an award-winning poet and writer currently living and working in Edinburgh. I’ve been commissioned to write for organisations including StAnza Poetry Festival, BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio Scotland and the British National Gallery.
In 2018 I was selected by YWCA Scotland as one of the top inspirational women under 30. I am on the board of trustees for YWCA Scotland and the Poets Advisory Group for the Scottish Poetry Library.
When I’m not writing or performing, I have a job in arts administration. I also like reading, running, Studio Ghibli films, gin, theatre, learning Japanese, and obscure unsolvable mysteries. We all believe in Sasquatches right?

I have written prose, non-fiction essays, poems and recently a couple of short plays. You can also contact me about performing at a gig, running a workshop or appearing on your radio show/TV/podcast/passion project!
