Developing Creative Practice funding!

I've been awarded Developing Your Creative Practice funding from the Arts Council England to write a novel in short stories - this means I have some fantastic creative time for the year but alongside this I'm also gigging, running a stand up comedy course and taking the Stand By Your Nan show out for another outing.

Stand By Your Nan has been a wonderful project for me, getting in contact with audiences via podcasting as well as live performance, and I'm bringing it to the Leicester Comedy Festival as the first outing since lockdown. Book tickets here - I've kept it to £5 or Pay What you Want in order to keep costs for people low.

Wednesday 22nd January, Wygston's House, Leicester 7pm - look forward to seeing you there! I was most excited when a podcast listener came to last year's show so I hope some will come to this. Do bring your nan stories - I love to share others stories as part of the show and it's always a treat.

Writing is a solitary experience but even though the process is done alone, the sharing never is. I'm lucky enough to have a fabulous mentor on board - Lisa Blower. She's a brilliant writer and her novel Pondweed is a great read.

Hope to see you at a gig, show or hear from you soon! Don't forget if you're interested to read more of my work take a look here:
