- Writer, Tour Guide, Curator
The creator of Skyliner is Hayley Flynn: a lover of looking up and opening closed doors. She loves art and cities, and as a consequence is now a tour guide, curator, and researcher. Hayley is studying for an MA in Place Writing at MMU’s Manchester Writing School and was the UK’s first and only City Curator for National Trust.
Hayley works freelance and have written for publications such as The Guardian, Caught By the River, Untapped Cities, & Elsewhere Journal. I’ve given tours to journalists, influencers and tourists from all over the world and my tours and creative projects been featured in The Telegraph, San Francisco Chronicle, Boston Globe, BBC, New York Magazine, Creative Tourist, & 50 Things to Do in Manchester Before You Die.
Hayley is interested in alternative tourism and likes to promote and practice honest tourism; exploring not only places but important issues such as loss of public space and gentrification.
