About the tutor

This self-paced course is led by author Craig Jordan-Baker.

Craig Jordan-Baker is a working-class writer with an interest in language, natural history and psychogeography. He studied Creative Writing before going on to obtain a PhD in Philosophy from the University of Sussex. 

His first novel The Nacullians is a non-linear narrative focussing on the lives of three-generations of a working-class Anglo-Irish family which the Irish Times called, ‘a multi-layered treatise on memory and the stories we tell ourselves’. His second book If the River is Hidden is a non-fiction collaboration with Irish poet Cherry Smyth about their 2021 pilgrimage along the Bann, Northern Ireland’s longest river. It was the Republic of Consciousness Prize book of the month in February 2023 and will feature prominently in this years’ Belfast Book Festival, Skibbereen Arts Festival and the Southbank Centre’s Irish poetry showcase. 

Craig is currently a Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing at the University of Brighton and regularly runs writing and foraging walks for a variety of organisations. 

'It is rare to find a debut author so liberated from the polite conventions of the creative writing classroom. Craig Jordan-Baker writes with such mischief and narrative daring, like Eric Morecambe, gripping us by the collar and telling us all the right stories but not necessarily in the right order.'

– Ronan Hession - author of Leonard and Hungry Paul
