Bio: I write about literature, environment, and the mind. My publications include various articles on Richard Jefferies, Hardy, and Virginia Woolf, and a contribution to the Green Letters journal about reading, literature, and sustainability. I have published creative non fiction in the magazines Earthlines, the Island Review, and This England. Moments of Place is a blog for my non-fiction writing about nature, landscape, and place. I manage the blog for the Victorian author and naturalist Richard Jefferies that can be viewed here, with Simon Coleman: https://richardjefferies.wordpress.com/ Simon Coleman has been a member of the Jefferies Society since 2000. He is interested in Jefferies' writing on place, his use of Greek ideas of natural beauty and the union of mind and body, and in promoting his value today as a writer who brought a spiritual dimension to human interaction with nature. Simon's other interests include Walt Whitman, and mythology (especially Celtic, Greek and Norse).
