Mark is an award winning writer, filmmaker and winner of the 2018 Inroads Fellowship award. He currently exists in the UK where he has a wife, two demonic children and a demented dog who chases invisible pixies for a living.
Mark used to be a guy who let a hundred different forms of fear hold his creativity back. He used to write stories and only share them with a few close friends, or they would stay forever locked on an ancient, monolithic PC; never to see the light of day.
At the age of 41 he went through what can only be described as a genetic mutation. He shed his fear, threw out everything he thought he knew about writing and started anew.
Mark recently attended the Robert McKee Story Seminar in London. Here’s the lowdown on what he thought of the three-day course.
