Hello from the North East of England. I have had a long and strained relationship with fiction compounded by my career requirement to write mountains of uninspiring academic prose. That being said, I have found that this prose style can offer routes to fiction that are relatively unexplored. So....I am here to learn about writing in general, to offer editorial advice (I have done a lot of that) and, in time, submit my own work. My academic career keeps me pretty busy so I'm most likely to be noted for popping in, saying something wholly inappropriate, and disappearing for long periods. I promise to work on this.
