New Chapter

London calling

Sorry for my poor blogging this summer – I’ve been traveling. In July, I left behind my life in Norwich, England. I’ve enjoyed living in Norwich, a quiet, unassuming yet seductive city in Eastern England. I came to the ‘Fine City’ to take an MA at UEA and was then offered a job teaching creative writing at the local prison whilst I built up writing career – and somehow that slipped into six years. I met a lot of great people who’ve helped and influenced my writing during that period and have benefited enormously from the support of the Writers’ Centre Norwich. The time has now come to take that experience and move my writing on to the next level. I’m off to London to start a PhD.

My time in Norwich has seen me win a number of prestigious writing awards and bursaries. Also, I’ve found an agent, have a novel on submission, had four radio plays produced and broadcast (and a couple more in the works). More recently, I’ve been awarded a Doctoral scholarship with Lincoln University (LSPA) for a performing arts PhD on New Playwriting at the Royal Court Theatre in London. So, following a summer of traveling and writing and catching up with friends in Holland, Belgium, Croatia, Hungary, Scotland, England and Ireland – I’m moving to Central London in September and starting a new chapter in my life. I look forward to sharing my new adventures with you all, I appreciate your interest in my blog and hope you’ll all continue to support my plays, shorts stories and novels.
