Manchester Literature Festival- Face 2 Face with Heidi Thomas

Thomas is an award winning script writer for both television and stage.

Thomas is an award winning script writer for both television and stage. She has done a prolific amount of screen writing based on book adaptations including Madam Bovary, I Capture the Castle, Lilies, Ballet Shoes and, the extremely popular (although I never really saw why), Cranford.

Thomas gave some interesting insights into writing and the creative industries. She answered questions ranging from how she creates a character, to how she found moving from theatre production into screen writing. However, as for getting that much wished for big break into the industry, I’m sorry guys she didn’t give much away!
