Profile Information

What I do:
Currently teaching Creative Writing courses in Bridgend and running a not-for-profit Writing Group, 'Scribblers'
A little more about me:
I run a not-for-profit Writing Group, 'Scribblers' - we meet once a month to share all types of writing, give and gain feedback, and generally have a jolly nice time :)

I LOVE editing others' writing, and am always open to submissions from budding screen or prose writers.

I've completed a BA(hons) in Creative Writing with Film Studies, and an MA in Creative and Critical Writing, which have given me the ability to critique creative work, as well as create it.

Most recently, I've been working behind the scenes on short and feature and films, which we hope will premiere in 2013.
Projects I’m working on:
Arts Exchange
Bridgend Secret Garden Party
Scribblers Writing Group
Size Matters Not (short film)
Feature Film (pre-production)

Cardiff Everyman Open Air Festival: A First Timer’s Preview

In the next couple of weeks I'll be reviewing some much anticipated theatre at Sophia Gardens, as part of Cardiff Everyman's Open Air Festival.

Excited much? Let me think about that for a moment...

Uh, YES! And not simply for the shows (though Taming of the Shrew and Blackadder II are both definitely right up my street, not to mention the 'squeeeeeee' that I feel about a live version of The Little Mermaid), but, somewhat unbelievably, this will be my first taste of… Continue

La Traviata (WNO) - A Young Critic’s Review

La Traviata – WNO

Wales Millenium Centre

The glamour and tradition of opera is celebrated in WNOs only ‘staple’ offering this season. La Traviata, an opera which fits perfectly within the Fallen Women theme, introduces Violetta, a frivolous, flirtatious courtesan whose lavish life is interrupted by the young, persistent Alfredo, who persuades her to embrace a monogamous existence with him.

Despite her resistance, Violetta lets her heart guide her…

Hi Harriet. What's your news? Have you finished your M.A? Are you writing or editing? It seems a while since It's My Shout - and the time is slipping by faster and faster.

Hi Harriet not sure if I have mailed you about this our first workshop led by critic
Ben Bryant will run this Sat afternoon the 2nd in Bridgend 1-4
You are very welcome to get involved

Are you aged 16 – 25? Could you create a must-read review of theatre or music? Co-ordinated by Bridgend County Borough Council’s Arts and Community Development, the Young Critics’ Scheme aims to develop and showcase the critical voices of young people and encourage them to think critically about the theatrical or musical productions they have seen.

Organised in partnership with the National Theatre of Wales and Academi, one of the National Theatre Wales’ new critics and ex-editor of Buzz magazine, Ben Bryant, will mentor and run workshop sessions to encourage participants to write and explore the role of the art critic, coming up with different ways to respond to theatre and live art including using Face Book, Vimeo and Twitter.

Throughout the coming months, the young critics will be encouraged to write a number of theatrical and musical reviews, beginning with a review of the National Theatre’s Wales production of ‘Love Steals us from Loneliness’ by Gary Owen, which will be performed in Hobos, Bridgend in October.

To get involved in this exciting new project, please call Bridgend County Borough Council’s Arts Project officer Guy O’Donnell, on (01656) 642727, or email: arts@bridgend.gov.uk.
