A crash course in Darren R Hill: the creative minimalist

I was a publisher for over sixteen years. For the majority of those years I was a Commissioning Editor and List Manager, but I also proofread, copy edited and drank tea. In plain terms I…

  • decided what people would write
  • decided who would write
  • helped people write
  • did a lot of writing myself
  • planned, developed and produced

I’m now sharing those skills over at Darren’s Imaginality, while pursuing my own creative writing and musical dreams. I am a believer in self-publishing, self-promotion and self-actualisation.

I believe we all have a story to tell, and I can help you share that story with others.

Some basics
I am a published author (The Sky Will Fall (Dark Chapters)) and have written for many and varied journals, periodicals and websites.

I turn my hand to a little poetry, depending on the availability of my muse. I am a keen, if not accomplished, photographer.

i photoshop, therefore i am

I write, record and will perform my music for love or money.

I am a digidisciple and I regularly contribute here.

If you would like me to write something for you, then send me an email (darrenraymondhill[at]gmail[dot]com) and we can discuss it, be it a blog post, article or promotional copy, or even your very own theme tune and soundtrack.

Above all I am a work in progress… if you want to know more, then take a look at 42 things you may not know about Darren R Hill

In short, this blog is about how I try to live a simple creative life.
