I teach journalism and media studies at Rhodes University in South Africa. I edit the Rhodes Journalism Review. In addition to having been a journalist (for 16 years) and writing and teaching about journalism (for 21 years), I write poetry, read a lot of and teach courses in nonfiction writing and I research and write within the academy. The fusions, overlaps and fruitful synergies of all these pursuits really interest me.
You can find out more about me, my writing and projects on my Rhodes page, my Academia.edu page and at our Media and Citizenship blog.
As much as I like writing, I love talking so I’ve also been the convenor of the National Arts Festival public lecture series called Think!Fest (from 2008 to 2017).
