MY LIFE IN LIPPY AND LEOPARD PRINT
I had a wonderful night yesterday evening.
A few weeks ago I was asked by Jenny Monks the assistant producer of the film I co-wrote last year (Big Society The Musical, currently in production) to speak at the first of a series of networking events called “Story To Tell”.
Hosted by Jenny’s Pencil Trick Productions the talk took place last night. I spoke alongside crime author Sheila Quigley and local storyteller/WEA Creative tutor Bernie Kennedy to a packed out room at Waterstones in Liverpool ONE.
The theme for the night was “the modern writer” and how things have changed especially recently since social media has taken off in a big way.
We all had such a laugh (as you can see from the photo!) and I reckon everyone in the room met at least one creative person they hadn’t bumped into before. There’s more “Story To Tell” events coming up this year so if you’re in the north west I really recommend you pop along.
This is the second time I’ve been out and about this week, on Tuesday I went to the launch of the Write Now festival, a celebration of one act plays written by up and coming playwrights again here in Liverpool which takes place the first week of April. I hope to get to see all the plays, on the launch night we were treated to sneak snippets from each and they all look so tasty!
These two events alone I think just shows what a vibrant positive place Liverpool is at the moment, and how creativity very much part of Merseyside’s DNA.
