Jo Clifford's headshot

I am the author of 90+ professionally produced plays in every medium that have been seen all over the world. I also perform my own work. I am a proud father and grandmother.

I love running writer’s workshops, and am hugely experienced at doing it. I have led writer’s workshops with the Traverse, the Festival Hub, Playwrights’ Workshop, in secondary schools; in Valencia, in Singapore, in Mumbai, and have designed and led Masters’ courses in Playwriting at Queen Margaret University. Besides playwriting, I can teach workshops that focus on radio writing, on gender, on bereavement. In fact, on anything you care to mention.
