Introduction I'm Carolyn Waudby, a journalist, lecturer and poet. I'm a lover of travel, art, film, music and literature and have an interest in the cafe societies of the late 19th century and early 20th century. I've written travel articles, opinion columns and reviews for various print and online publications, including The Press Association, The Yorkshire Post and Britain magazine. My poetry has appeared in journals and small magazines such as Mslexia, Magma, The Reader, Staple and Haiku Quarterly, and I've collaborated on a number of projects using poetry in the public sphere. I'm a senior lecturer in Journalism at Sheffield Hallam University, where I specialise in feature writing for magazines and newspapers. I can also be found on LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and the Sheffield Hallam University C3Ri research website.
Interests Walking in the city or countryside, music of most genres, world food. I play the piano, not very well and I have a tenor saxophone in the cellar and an unplayed clarinet in the attic. The clarinet used to be my first instrument.
