About Lucy

Lucy is an award-winning playwright and scriptwriter, with credits in film, radio, TV and theatre. She leads the Get Playwriting! and Script Lab courses at Chichester Festival Theatre. Her new film, A Bed of Roses, based on a true story, is in development and her most recent play, Poisoned Beds, co-written with Greg Mosse, toured the south coast in 2019.

She also writes fiction: her short story, Calm Down, Dear, won the Brighton Prize and her debut novel, Wedding Stakes, was a finalist in the Exeter Novel prize.

After completing an RLF Writing Fellowship at the University of Chichester in 2017, Lucy began working as a Writing Project Associate. In this role she leads workshops and provides individual consultancy for businesses, charities, start-ups and the public sector on everything from report writing to social media content.

A passionate advocate for life-long learning, Lucy has for several years been a governor at a large FE College in Hampshire.

Lucy enjoys working with both staff and students, helping them to identify existing skills and build upon them to develop a consistent and effective communication style. She is especially good at helping undergraduate and postgraduate artistic practitioners express their ideas in written form.
