More about Liz
As a writer of poetry I like to keep a hand in other art forms so I tutor on a cross-arts module for The Open College of Arts as well as on their Creative Writing courses. I am the OCA Unit Leader for poetry.
Here’s how I try to keep abreast of all the arts:
I am a frequenter of Music in Bristol and hope to get to know the Repertoire at St Georges Brandon Hill. And I sing in the Nailsea Choral Society.
Before I left Sheffield I acted in two plays put on the Crucible main stage by Sheffield’s People’s Theatre: The Sheffield Mysteries in 2014 and Dream in 2016 both of them written by Chris Bush and directed by Daniel Evans. I have recently joined Bristol Old Vic Adult theatre group and am looking forward to this term's performance.
In 2014 -15 I did a film-making course for older people as part as an EU-funded (please note) project in Cooperation with Portugal, Slovenia and Italy as a way of ensuring active aging. I directed one five minute film and was screenwriter and actor for another: Swimming Pool which was subsequently shown at the Women Over 50 Film Festival in Brighton in 2015. http://cinageproject.eu/en/package/cinage-films/film-09.html
