What sort of stuff do I write? All sorts, really. I’ve written a novella, several short plays, and an award-winning audio comedy drama. I realise that’s probably not very helpful, so here’s some examples. This is just the stuff that got nominated for / won awards.
Grafters Gables is a unique combination of street art and storytelling.
Working with the ridiculously talented street artist, Frank Styles, I wrote a novella and a street play that told the stories behind eight massive murals he painted on gable-ends around Hendon, in Sunderland.
Mackem Craic is an audio comedy drama, staged to sound like a local radio phone-in, but with a supernatural twist — the former host is trolling the show from beyond the grave. The show won Community Development Project of the Year at the Community Radio Awards 2017.
For this project, I worked with award-winning director Corinne Kilvington (Theatre Space NE), and the equally award-winning Jay Sykes (Spark Radio), along with 160 participants from local schools and community groups.
