A college English lecturer, Neil is a graduate of English Literature and Creative Writing from the University of East Anglia, (situated in UNESCO City of Literature, Norwich) renowned for its creative writing MA. A voracious reader; writing is his perennial love. He has been doing so with professional intent since a young age and had his first haikus published at ten. Whilst still at college, he was recognised for an outstanding piece of work in English by the University of East London. At uni, he partook in the first Screen East/ Anglia TV ‘Storylab: Script Breakfasts’ programme, in Cambridge, during which he wrote a feature script, which was workshopped with professional actors.
In the time since graduating uni, amongst other things, he has been entertainment editor of the, then, newly founded ‘The Student Website’, at UEA, and was selected for ‘Talent Lab Media Hub’ at the University of East London, for which he wrote a corporate script and some copy for a website. He has also interned at both Muzik and Jockey Slut, national dance music magazines. Following this, he contributed fashion articles and a comedy news column to Outline magazine in Norwich, upsetting the entire goth community of Norfolk in the process.
He has recently written a novella for young adults alongside several short stories. Last year he had poems featured in ‘Homeland’, published by United Press. He also participated in the Romford Contemporary Arts Programme’s (now MADE PUBLIC) ‘Off the Page’ programme, with author Gemma Seltzer. He recently wrote film reviews for Xtreme Entertainment Network and music reviews for Fluid Radio.
Aside from writing, he has acted in two Shakespearean productions with the Romford Summer Theatre, featured in a Natwest advert, and has presented radio in Norwich and Romford. An art school watanabe, he has had digital images exhibited in ‘Wandering Out Loud’, Norwich, and on hypegallery.com, and traditional media pictures exhibited in ‘Paint the Town Red’, Ilford, and ‘Outside: In’ at the Ruskin Gallery, Cambridge. Most recently he exhibited a picture in the E17 Art Trail in Walthamstow.
