Me in 2020

Martin McCallion

I write stories, blog posts, and so on. I live in Hackney, London. Right now I’m studying for a Masters in Creative Writing.

What I’m Talking About Today

No posts yet today. See my blog for the latest.

This Site, and Me

The main purpose of this site is to hold my blog, but here’s a bit more about me.

I’m Martin McCallion. I’m a writer and a student. A student of writing. From October 2020 I will be/have been studying for a Masters in Creative Writing at Birkbeck, University of London.

I used to be a software developer, and it’s entirely possible that I will be again — or will be trying to be one. Once I’ve got my masters I hope to make my living by writing, but that’s a hard path.

In the meantime I’ll keep my hand in with contributions to open-source projects, notably the Nikola software that I use to build this site.

And… I’m not against the idea of some part-time programming work, if something suitable comes up. 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 toyed with the idea of journalism. There’s some more about my writing story here.
