Finalist Sister

Toby Norways
Writer / Screenwriting Lecturer

I joined Create50 in 2015. I have reviewed 40 projects.

Previous jobs include being a car salesman, a fire-eater, and a scrap metal dealer. Being a writer has its faults, but I think my career path is improving.

Films that Inspired Me

Memento (but not Inception). Fargo, Oh Brother Where Art Thou?, Big Leb, (but not Intolerable Cruelty), Pulp Fiction & Reservoir Dogs (but not Kill Bills)

My Favorite Quote

The 'foot massage' dialogue, but I can't quote all of it.

About Me

Day job-wise, I’ve taught creative writing and scriptwriting at various institutions - Goldsmiths, Birkbeck, and the LCC. I was course leader of the BA Creative Writing at Buckinghamshire New University where I set up a 3-year BA Scriptwriting. I currently lecture in scriptwriting at the University of Bedfordshire.

I’ve had several prose efforts published, and numerous scripts produced. My films have screened in diverse locations around the world including BAFTA Piccadilly, Hollywood, and Iraq. My last few scripts have focussed on humanitarian issues and have been supported by Amnesty International.

I was recently awarded a studentship by Newman University to research a PhD Creative Writing. The creative component is a historical novel concerning Allied prisoners of war under the Japanese, working on the Thai-Burma Railway from 1942-45.

It's a fun and refreshing change to write in the Horror genre!
