Jan successfully applied for our 2012 HI Wireless drama writing programme, which is designed to encourage and develop aspiring drama writers through supported workshops and mentoring. The scheme will culminate with twelve 10 minute dramas being recorded for broadcast online in mid 2013. Jan lives on the North West Coast of Scotland. The area, its issues and colourful characters are central to many of her projects, her writing a quirky take on Highland life. She writes drama and comedy for all ages and in a range of formats.
As well as having made several films for FilmG, Jan's plays have been performed in the SCDA One Act Festivals including three written for local Primary Schools. Two adult plays have received rehearsed readings: Concensus at Grey Coast Theatre and The Clearance at the Traverse. Jan graduated from the Writers’ Factory ‘Screenwriting Express’ course in 2007 and was one of the winners in The List/Metro Ecosse Short Film Script Competition (2008) with Learning Curves.
