Recent publications and broadcasts include Poetry of the First World War: An Anthology (Oxford University Press, October 2013) and a 1-hour arts documentary, Ivor Gurney: The Poet who Loved the War (BBC4, 2014; I was the producer of a BBC2 documentary on Sylvia Plath's The Bell Jar, broadcast in August 2018.

With Philip Lancaster, I am editing Ivor Gurney's complete literary works in five volumes for OUP; volume 1 is currently in press for publication during 2019. I have also edited the 6th edition of the Norton Anthology of Poetry alongside Mary Jo Salter and Margaret Ferguson (February 2018).
