death rituals

I am currently writer-in-residence at the Coffin Works museum in the Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham, where I am co-investigator on "Dead Fashionable" a project on the history of burial shrouds. I am running a series of writing events in conjunction with BrumYODO and their annual festival “A Matter of Life and Death” to include a series of school workshops about death and dying, a death and literature book group, an adult writing workshop at Coffin Works, and a death cafe. My previous work has focussed on forensic analysis and crime scene investigation.
