Philip Roddis

Profile for Philip Roddis

They say if you want to write then lead an interesting life. Mine's certainly been that. I travel all over the world and have at various points been: academic, (not very good) businessman, street sweeper, barman, lorry driver, hotel porter, youth worker, painter & decorator, salesman and systems analyst. Currently I'm a lecturer - digital arts, computing and social sciences - at both of Sheffield's universities. Writing is my first love though, and has been since early childhood.

I write to make sense of things. E.M. Forster famously asked: how do I know what I think until I see what I say? I write as a way of reflecting, of making senses of what would otherwise, I fear, be a mass of undifferentiated experience - one damn thing after another!
