Thomas W. Hodgkinson has worked as Deputy Editor of Literary Review and Contributing Editor at The Week. He writes book reviews for The Spectator, travel pieces for the Daily Mail, and occasional features.

In 2011 he became the first person officially to swim from Albania to Corfu. He is definitely the first person to have done it naked.

In 2013 his screenplay Memoirs of a Stalker was a finalist at the Austin Film Festival. In 2014/15 his screenplay The Magnificent Kate Morgan was nominated as a finalist or semi-finalist at the Austin Film Festival, the Sun Valley Film Festival, and the LA Comedy Festival.

In 2016 he launched the Method Writers movement, devoted to applying the techniques of Method Acting to creative writing. The idea was inspired by his own experience of writing Memoirs of a Stalker inside a cupboard at his home.
