Me in 2021

Martin McCallion

I write stories, blog posts, and so on. I live in Hackney, London. Right now I’m looking for a new job and working on completing a novel, having recently finished studying for a Masters in Creative Writing.

What I’m Talking About Today

This Site, and Me

I’m Martin McCallion. I’m a writer and a software developer. From October 2020 through to September 2021 I was studying for a Masters in Creative Writing at Birkbeck, University of London.

I’m waiting for my results and also looking for a new role. Right now that looks likely to mean returning to software development. I’d love to make my living by writing, but that’s a hard path. I’m investigating writing-related job opportunities too, though.

I’ve been keeping my hand in with the odd contribution to open-source projects, notably the Nikola software that I use to build this site.

You can always check out my CV. And see here for more about my programming history.

As to writing: I blog, I write fiction, I write technical documents. I’ve considered journalism. There’s some more about my writing story here, and here’s a version of my CV slanted towards writing.
