Welcome to Will Buckingham.com. I write creative non-fiction, fiction, philosophy and for children. When not elsewhere in the world, I am based in Leicester, UK.

I have previously been Reader in Writing and Creativity in the school of humanities at De Montfort University, a visiting scholar in the College of Literature and Journalism Sichuan University, and visiting professor in humanities and global cultures at the Parami Institute in Yangon, Myanmar.

My most recently published book is a children’s novel about relativity, space dogs, time dilation and friendship, called Lucy and the Rocket Dog, which came out from Knopf in the summer of 2017. Next up is an anthropological memoir of Indonesia called Stealing With the Eyes (Haus Publications, 2018). There’s a complete list of my book publications on my writing page.

I have a strong interest in comparative and cross-cultural approaches to philosophy. You can find out more on my research pages.

I also have a blog here on this site, where I tend to post updates about my writing. For longer, more considered blog posts, I can occasionally be found on my WaywardPhilosophy.com blog.
