Nature writing, but not as you know it….on my new Substack The Colour of Chalk

Launching today on Substack, my new publication project, The Colour of Chalk – writing journeys with me, from the chalk coast of Sussex to the borderlands of my British-Iranian identity. Non-fiction, short story, poetry.

The title of this Substack is named after my 2021-22 podcast The Colour of Chalk, a walk and talk podcast made as inaugural Writer-in-Residence across the Seven Sisters and Sussex Heritage Coast, UK for South Downs National Park.

So now I am continuing my journeys, taking my pen for a walk with readers, sometimes to places I know well along these ancestral bone paths of Sussex, or down along the lip of its shoreline and in dialogue with water – river, sea, far ocean.

I will take my readers to places I am discovering or researching afresh for current commissions, pure pleasure or personal refuge and restoration. I will write about the process of developing my new work, including how I manage to make my life work as a writer and artist with its struggles, insights, breakdowns and breakthroughs.
