About

Becky is a commissioned writer, creative writing facilitator and prize-winning performer based in Leeds.  Her work is informed by the belief that not only do writing and the spoken word help us to make sense of the world and our place in it but that they provide us with tools to transform the world and our own lives.

In her spare time, she can be found visiting art galleries, watching films, walking, reading, listening to Radio 4, attending the theatre and spoken word nights, cooking for friends, and fox watching. She hates the phrase collateral damage, is interested in people, places and ideas and believes adventures can be found everywhere. Becky is thankful  to lots of people for their love and support.

She is currently putting together a poetry collection and waiting to hear from agents with regards to her second, magical realist, novel Skybound.  Look out for progress updates on her blog.

    Hi Becky,
    thanks for your news. All very exciting.
    I was wondering the other day if there are to be any more writing sessions at the Hepworth? I would love to do another session with you and the “gang”.

    Happy New Year,
    Sharyn Owen

    • Hi Sharyn,

      I too have been missing the words of you and the gang. I’m adding to plans this morning for the following workshop on 9th March 2013, 10.30-4. Hope you can make it.

      Just One Of Many Fictions

      It has been said of Philip Lorca diCorcia that his photographs create ‘just one of many fictions’. In this practical creative writing workshop, we will look at how the artist represents others’ lives through photography and to what extent his photographs tell the truth. Exploring the narratives diCorcia offers us, we will use them as the basis for writings about ourselves and others.

      Places can be booked by calling the Learning Team on 01924 247398.
