Episode 7: with Jed Mercurio
In this episode we hear from screenwriter Jed Mercurio, in an interview with our lecturer Tim Loane. This recording captures an online session with Jed and our students, during the lockdown of spring 2020.
This is one of a series of masterclasses with novelists, poets, playwrights and screenwriters, designed to support a life of writing. Special thanks to the Queen’s Annual Fund.
