I’m Daniel Kelly, a writer.

To pay the bills, I’ve been a copywriter & comms consultant for the NHS, Hatchards Bookshop, University of Oxford, Lloyds Banking Group, Human Rights Watch, London Film School, and a fair few more. In daydreams, I make a living by writing short stories, reviewing things I read & watch & listen to, and sharing bits of it all. I’m curious, passionate, and have ADHD.

Every Sunday since August 2022, I’ve shared a culturally omniverous journal.

So far, I have over 50 readers subscribed, reading about creative things that have inspired me, what I’ve been up to, and whatever else comes to mind.

Why become a paid subscriber?

The Sunday letter will always be free for everyone.

If you have anything spare, though I’m currently saving for study — every penny & pound helps. You can pay for your subscription, buy me a coffee, PayPal me, get me a book from my wishlist, or work with me.

Once I get a handful of paid subscribers, I’ll start adding bits in. So, if you like what & how I write, perhaps spot some semblance of similar taste between us, I hope you’ll sign up.

If you …

  • enjoy short lists of creative stuff to check out, or

  • want to join me in learning more about creative journaling, writing short stories and literary criticism, and generally how to talk about and meditate on creative stuff a little more

… give it a go.
