With Volume 5 of VOICES FROM HOME now running as part of Brighton Fringe 2021, we chat to our wonderful writers to find out more about them and their creative process.
How would you describe your writing in 3 words?
Intimate, playful, witty.
Who or what are your biggest writing influences?
People I know and meet, namely my hilarious mum, and other creatives. I’m really inspired by the work of Bryony Kimmings, Michaela Coel, Richard Gadd, Anna Jordan and Duncan Macmillan to name but a few!
What should a tourist see and do in your home county/town?
Brighton; Treat yourself to something sweet at Cielo Cakery, get lost in The North Laines, dine on a Fatto A Mano pizza, and find a tucked away pub in Kemptown to wash it down with a local pint.
What’s the best piece of advice (writing or otherwise) you’ve ever received?
“Don’t get it right, get it written” - Sarah Dickenson, dramaturg extraordinaire.
Can you tell us a bit about your play for Voices From Home?
Woo Woo briefly examines first love, secret grief and the surprising profundity of The Sims.
What would you like audiences to take away from Voices from Home and your play in particular?
The hardest things to say are usually the things that need to be said.
