This Month’s Programme

The guest interview this month is with Greg Mosse, author of The Coming Darkness. Greg describes himself as ‘A writer and encourager of writers.’ He also has a lifelong interest in theatre, both in the UK and, as a graduate, in Paris before going on to live in New York, Los Angeles and Madrid. He teaches scriptwriting at the Criterion Theatre, Chichester Festival Theatre and elsewhere.

Greg is married to novelist Kate Mosse and Suzie met them both for the first time at one of their many writing workshops. Greg went on to develop and teach an MA in Creative Writing.
