'Pen to Page':
In conversation with Jimmy McGovern

A rare chance to meet the award winning tv and film writer Jimmy McGovern. Jimmy has created some of the most exciting and original dramas of the past decade including the tv series 'Hearts and Minds', 'The Lakes', and the extraordinary 'Cracker' starring Robbie Coltrane. His films have tackled contemporary subjects - catholicism and gay rights ('Priest'), the Sheffield football tragedy ('Hillsborough'), the struggle of Liverpool's dockworkers ('Dockers') and a soon to be broadcast Channel 4 drama documentary based on the events of Bloody Sunday in Northern Ireland.

Jimmy will be in conversation with local playwright Rupert Creed in this special Writers Guild & Bafta North event.

Still to come in the 'Pen to Page' Writers Guild series of talks: David Nobbs on 'Writing Comedy' at Hull Central (Friday 16th Nov).
