Jane Pugh is currently performing her one woman show, ‘Life Girl’ at venues across Cornwall and has been commissioned by the National Trust to write and produce a show for children. As well as writing her own material, Jane script-edits. She is currently editing four short plays for the Minack Theatre and recent credits include ‘Wolf’s Child’ by Wildworks and ‘First Light’ written by Mark Hayhurst and premiered at the Chichester Festival Theatre. Jane teaches scriptwriting at Falmouth University, amongst other organisations, specialising in understanding narrative and the origins of storytelling.

Formally, she worked as a script editor for the BBC on single dramas, serials and long-running dramas. Of course, one more essential feature in her work, is the inspiration she brings to adults and youth through writing groups at The Writers’ Block
