I don't have comments on this site and I don't use social media, so the best way to get in touch is by email. I reply to pretty much all of the emails I receive here within a fortnight.
Whether you have an enquiry, feedback, a request for a post, question, recommendation or just want to say hi, I'd love to hear from you.
(Please read the section below first to avoid your email being marked as spam and deleted.)
Please do not:
Email me about mental health crises - please contact a local helpline, friend or family member, or medical practitioner
Request to guest post on this site or any of the other sites I write for. I don't accept guest posts. It's not personal.
Ask me to link to your article, website or company.
Send me random press releases.
Add me to your email list without permission.
Also, I am very, very, very shy and nearly always say no to speaking requests (be that radio, panels, at events, etc.) As much as I'd love to do it, I'm not a good speaker - feel free to ask but be aware that I'm not the best choice.
Please do send me:
Questions / topic suggestions / comments / random thoughts / literally whatever is on your mind
Corrections or clarifications
Book / music / film / whatever recommendations
Pictures of your pets (that always makes me day)
Basically anything which is not trying to sell me something or asking me to help you sell something via this site.
Some other housekeeping-y stuff:

I sometimes quote other people's work. This is always in italics and with a clear credit. If you believe I am infringing on any form of copyright, please get in touch.
You are welcome to quote my work but please credit and it and do not repost an entire essay without my permission. Seriously.
