I’m an educator and writer, based in London, UK. For my latest writing see this page and my blog. I am also an editor of Antigone Journal.

Gavin McCormick

A classicist by training: this often comes through in my writing, which aims to offer thought-provoking cultural comment and historically informed discussion. I am guided by the principle that the best writing must be unashamedly honest, probing, and reflective, while also being direct and trenchant, yet charitable and open to critique. I was until recently Head of Classics at North London Collegiate School and I hold a DPhil degree from the University of Oxford.
