Teaching at the OU and OCA

After a pause of a few months, I’m pleased to be back to teaching again. I’ve always found teaching and writing mutually supportive, so I’m delighted to be working on the second year of the Open University MA course in Creative Writing, and on the BA in Creative Writing at the Open College of the Arts. Term starts soon, and so I’m looking forward to virtually meeting my new students in the next couple of weeks.

Talking About Orpheus in Sofia

This was recorded last December, but I forgot to post it back then, so I thought I should add this link to a video of my Bulgarian TV interview with the excellent Dessie Mikova about my novel The Descent of the Lyre. It was recorded last December when I was over in Sofia.

In this interview, you will note that I become miraculously fluent in Bulgarian. It really is quite remarkable…

If you are not a Bulgarian speaker, then you can just watch my animated facial expressions and my extravagant gestures, and guess what I am saying. That is more or less what I did when I watched it again this morning…
