About the Event
Our Associate Facilitator Jo Whalley will introduce the session and attendees to eachother. She will lead the discussion with Emma, but they're very much here to answer your questions. We certainly want to explore and get you thiniking about the many different outlets there may be for your writing.
This session is aimed at writers of all levels, especially emerging writers.
Emma co-hosted Gaydio’s breakfast show for 5 years. She also presents cover shows on
BBC radio Manchester.
Before turning her hand to presenting her career began in 2002 working as a broadcast
journalist for a string of commercial radio stations. She also spent 3 years working for
National Prison Radio and set up the first radio station in a women’s prison in the UK earning
her a Sony award for her documentary work with prisoners at HMP Styal.
Her ‘Coming Out stories’ podcast has tens of thousands of listeners, has been adapted for
the stage and led to the launch of Emma’s first book this year. Her book is available through many bookstores and online bookesellers.
Associate Facilitator Jo rekindled her passion for writing at the age of forty when as a volunteer radio producer for Gaydio she began by writing programme briefs.
Her writing journey and journalistic approach continued with her radio play, the true story of a male rape survivor who contracted HIV in the 90s.
Jo’s creative writing started with a flash fiction piece about Tinnitus which will be published in Commonword’s forthcoming anthology Indivisible.
She likes working with artists and enjoys reformatting her writing to create new homes for her work. She also enjoys reading her work out at events.
