This Site, and Me

I’m Martin McCallion. I’m a writer and a student. A student of writing. Since October 2020 I 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.
