Women & Writing # 6: Gill Kirk, Playwright

1) If you could describe yourself in 3 words, what would they be and why? Buzzy, curious and noisy. I was one of those manic, loud, nosy kids who grew up into an adult with some more sophisticated adjectives. I love the world and people. There’s so much and you know you’ll never get your head around it in the time we have. I’m pathologically unable to keep that to myself. 2) What’s your background?

Women & Writing # 3: Philippa Willitts, Freelance Writer

Brill to have the lovely Philippa on the site today, who is a freelance writer. I know a lot of you out there would love to know how to source and undertake freelance writing work, so think you’ll get a lot from Philippa’s great insights.
