As part of our brand new ‘in conversation with’ series, we will be talking to Liz Coward, author, scriptwriter and non-practicing solicitor.

‘Conversations with’ is a series which explores our guest authors journey to writing. Without giving away too much, Liz graduated with a BA Honours in History and Classical Studies from the University of Surrey in 1987. She qualified as a Solicitor in 1994 and practised in London and the South East of England before graduating from the University of the Arts London, with an MA in Screenwriting in 2008.

In this conversation, Liz will be talking to us about her early career experiences and why she ended up on a more creative path andinto writing.

Liz’s credits include, ‘What makes us human?’ (co-written with Alison Lapper MBE), which was broadcast on BBC Radio 2 and published in the New Statesman, two short films numerous articles for publications such as Expat Living and Blood and Bandages – fighting for life in the RAMC Field Ambulance 1940 -1946, was published by Sabrestorm Publishing in April 2017. Blood and Bandages was Liz’s first book and she has been delighted that it has been featured on TV, radio and in the press. Most recently, the book’s star, 104 year old William Earl, has appeared alongside Gary Lineker in the BBC1 documentary, My Grandad’s War.

In December 2017, Liz moved from the U.K to Singapore where she has devised and delivered writing courses, book talks and was invited to give one of the prestigious Monday Morning Lectures at the Asian Civilisations Museum. Liz is currently working on her second book and a screen adaptation of Blood and Bandages.

Liz has also recently taken up the post of Moderator for the American Association of Singapore’s career and networking group for women.
