He has also been drinks critic for the Sunday Times and has a column 'Novel Destinations' in High Life Magazine. He has also run with Corney and Barrow the successful series A Book and A Bottle, live tasting-readings. His TV show The Big Scottish Book Club brought literature programming back to BBC Scotland.

Creative Conversations is programmed by the University of Glasgow Creative Writing Programme and funded by the Ferguson Bequest.
