David’s bio

I’ve been a professional editor since 1995 and a creative writing tutor since 2003 – qualifications include a B.A. in English Literature and master’s degrees in both Publishing and Creative Writing (Distinction). I am currently studying for an MSc in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education and I’m a fellow of the Higher Education Academy. Based in Glasgow, I teach at the Centre for Lifelong Learning, University of Strathclyde. I’ve also taught creative writing at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum and Barlinnie Prison and do an annual stint of classes at the Mitchell Library for the Aye Write book festival.

My fiction has been published in the anthologies Glasgow KissOrangelabyrinth.com, Shorts 5: The Macallan/Scotland on Sunday Short Story CollectionA Fictional Guide to ScotlandStramash, The Glasgow SeekerSnacks after Swimming, Clockworks Vol. 1 and Homeground (examples can be read on other pages on this site). I’ve been a winner of the University of Strathclyde’s Keith Wright Memorial Literary Prize and a recipient of a Scottish Arts Council New Writer’s Bursary award. I’m also the author of six local history books.
