About Me


My name is Rebecca. I’m a writer, editor and cook. I like creative collaboration, playing with words and ideas, organising events and meeting people. I am working on a book about food and generosity and am represented by Harriet Moore at David Higham Associates.

My food blog Dinner Document includes recipes and essays.

I have written features about people, food, and fashion, among other subjects for VogueAnOther, The Business of Fashion, MonocleElle, The Financial Times, Munchies, Tank Magazine, The Daily Telegraph and many more

I have just been awarded a PhD in German poetry, funded by the Arts & Humanities Research Council. It is an analysis of ‘Niemands Frau’, Barbara Köhler’s contemporary German feminist poetic ‘translation’ of Homer’s Odyssey (and quantum physics, maths, film, grammar, film, weaving…) at University College London.

I am a post-doctoral research associate looking at poetry translation at Newcastle University.

I write poetry and am part of a collective set up by Edwina Attlee and Samuel Barton called ‘Sitting Room‘: we curate readings with quiche and stiff drinks, hosted in our front rooms.

I am from a village in Suffolk called Dallinghoo, and live in Peckham in London.
