A writer needs their words read...and hopefully paid for.
I went to school many, many years ago and taught myself script writing and creative story telling techniques by reading copious amounts of books.
I have been active in the creative industries for over 25 years. Shows I have been involved in have been broadcast on BBC and ITV in the UK. I am also a guest lecturer at Rutgers University, Newark, USA on creativity and the importance of self-expression.
