Bobby Seal

Freelance Writer at Your Service

United Kingdom

Professional Bio

I studied English to master's level and my dissertation was about notions of the flâneuse in early modernist literature, particularly in the works of Dorothy Richardson and Virginia Woolf.  I now have my own copywriting business and also work as a freelance writer.  I've recently had work published in Gorse, London Fictions, Writers' Forum and Unofficial Britain and I blog at www.psychogeographicreview.com  Current projects include  a book tracing a mythogeographic journey on the River Dee from the sea back to its source and a collaboration with the landscape artist Lesley Martin examining the 'plotlander' phenomenon of the inter-war years and the resultant chalets at Farndon in Cheshire.

    @ElaineAxten If you're interested in exploring the idea of the flaneuse, Deborah Parsons's 'Streetwalking the Metropolis: Women, the City and Modernity' is well worth tracking down too

    @ElaineAxten Hi Elaine and Being - thanks for pointing me in the direction of Perec and Bachelard - both new to me and both sound like they're worth searching out.
