This article about miniaturisation in literature didn't get published because the editor I was working with left her position before I could approach her with it.

     It explores my own relationship with miniaturisation as well as miniaturisation in the metaphysical poets (Andrew Marvell in particular) the Brontes, Emily Dickinson, W. G. Sebald, Virginia Woolf, Tom McCarthy and Helen Dunmore, amongst others.

Clicking on the image above takes you to a YouTube video where I chat about my life-long fascination with and anixety surrounding miniaturisation.
