Professor Gervase Phinn

Professor Gervase Phinn

Lecturer, Broadcaster and Writer




​"I owe a great debt to Leeds Trinity University. I was taught by enthusiastic, dedicated, good humoured and outstanding tutors and I gained such a brilliant grounding in English Literature and a passion to write myself.

"Following my degree I taught in a range of schools before becoming an education advisor and school inspector. I am now a freelance lecturer, broadcaster and writer. Most of the texts we studied were Penguin paperbacks: I dreamed of one day having my name on the cover of such a book. The dream came true."
