I am a Norwich-based freelance scriptwriter, editor or reader.

Screenwriting, Editing, Reading:

In screenwriting, my preference leans towards adaptation, either from a fictional source material or a real life person/event.

In script/story editing, I'm interested in whatever project you have - I want to know what you love about it, and that's what I'll love about it and help draw out of the writing. No matter how talented a writer is, a second head is invaluable. Don't write without one!

I am also trained in professional script coverage and love a chance to work through script reading, if you have submissions that you need help assessing. I have served in script judging panels and worked alongside accomplished Norfolk-based story editors.

I am currently nearing a breathing space in my Writer/Producer work on an exciting feature film about the longest strike in British history, 'Burston', and am looking for new plots to sink my teeth into or piles of screenplays to write coverage on.


Likewise, I enjoy copy editing and writing features for newspapers and magazines, and am beginning a series on the quirkier hidden gems around Norwich city. If you're looking for a copy editor who can work to either an academic, professional or casual tone, drop me a line.

Or, if you want a feature written on youth culture, theatre, film, strange shops or venues, LGBT issues or anything nerdy or liberal, I'm your girl.
