About me

Hello! My name is Dante. I'm 28 and originally from New Zealand. I've just moved to Exeter where I'm working on my PhD in English and Creative Writing. It's beautiful and green here but it sure does seem to rain a lot. My research is looking at the way technology and media changes our language and where all this 'post truth' ambiguity seems to be coming from.

Hello! My name is Dante. I'm 28 and originally from New Zealand. I've just moved to Exeter where I'm working on my PhD in English and Creative Writing. It's beautiful and green here but it sure does seem to rain a lot. My research is looking at the way technology and media changes our language and where all this 'post truth' ambiguity seems to be coming from.


Beyond this, I absolutely love storytelling in all its forms, whether literature, film, television, theatre, video games, music, or whatever shape it's in! My favourite writing is experimental because I think pushing the boundaries of what art 'should' be or 'should' do is really important for us to think about.


If you're working on English Literature, Media Studies, Drama, Classics, or any subject that involves responding to texts, I'd love to work with you, no matter your age or subject level!


If you're looking for guidance with things like critical thinking, philosophical arguments, how to structure compelling essays, how to contextualise your ideas with relevant theories, or just to reinvigorate the joy of literature, then please also get in touch!


Love your work,

Dante

About my sessions

I’d really prefer not to be overly-prescriptive in terms of our lessons. The most important thing for me to do first is just listen to you and get a sense of what you want out of our time together.


Are you finding it difficult to ‘get’ the style and themes of a particular text? Do you just not enjoy it? That’s great – we can work on that together by reading and discussing key sections, comparing it to works we might like better and figuring out why. The wonderful thing abou...

I’d really prefer not to be overly-prescriptive in terms of our lessons. The most important thing for me to do first is just listen to you and get a sense of what you want out of our time together.


Are you finding it difficult to ‘get’ the style and themes of a particular text? Do you just not enjoy it? That’s great – we can work on that together by reading and discussing key sections, comparing it to works we might like better and figuring out why. The wonderful thing about literature is it’s perfectly valid to not like something that lots of other people do, but let’s see if we can compellingly defend ourselves!


Are you having trouble in exam conditions, responding critically to unseen texts, or structuring an essay on-the-fly? No worries! We can work with past papers, we can answer questions together, we can set out homework plans to develop those skills, and we can learn some tools to give you a bit of a head start when it comes to exam day.


Do you have a larger project such as a thesis or dissertation and you’re looking to narrow your focus, extend your literature, structure it effectively, or just don’t know where to begin? Please do send me a message! We can talk about your project, why you’re passionate about it, mind-map ideas, I can provide feedback to draft sections, and I can point you in the direction of areas that I think might be worth exploring.
