Hi there! My name’s Josh and, as you might have guessed from the header, I’m Bath-based a scriptwriter, copywriter and podcaster (amongst other things). I have a BA in Creative Writing as well as an MA in Scriptwriting – both from Bath Spa University – so hopefully this means I know words good. On this site I have a wide range of examples of my work, going from copy that I’ve written to graphics I’ve designed. If you like what you see, then just imagine what I can do for you…
I’ve been a scriptwriter for over five years now. I graduated from Bath Spa University with an MA in Scriptwriting last year, to go with my Creative Writing BA that I received in 2017.
In my year-long Masters, I wrote a 60-minute stageplay and two feature-length screenplays, as well as writing and producing a 10-minute short play. During my BA, I penned a handful of TV and theatre scripts.
I specialise in writing comedy and animation, but I am also well-versed in writing drama, especially involving queer themes.
To take a closer look at what I’ve been up to, follow me down the rabbit hole.
Everything that has ever been written has started from nothing. Then an idea sparks, which is followed by a few scribbled notes that then develop into a fully-fledged piece of work. I’ve been there and done that many times over.
Whilst also putting together copy for my Creative Writing BA at Bath Spa University, I’ve also written content and copy for a number of different mediums to suit a variety of different styles.
Want to take a look at what I’ve got up to? Then step this way.
I made by first foray into the audio world with SpaLife Radio, Bath Spa Uni’s student radio station. During my three years there, I was probably best known as a host of That Monday Show, a fortnightly magazine programme.
I then moved on to hosting and producing podcasts, namely Pete & Josh are Old & Odd, which I do alongside comedy friend Peter Jones (no, not that one). You can check us out on Apple Podcasts, or listen to the episode below.
As well as being a scriptwriter, copywriter and podcaster; I do pursue a range of other creative exploits as well. The beautiful thing with writing is that it opens up so many other avenues that can be explored.
So, for the past three-or-so years I’ve been doing stand-up comedy, which I think has greatly helped my comedic voice. Doing live stand-up is a great barometer for finding out whether something I think is funny is also funny to other people.
The one thing that set me off on the path of writing was illustration, writing and drawing comic strips from a young age introduced me into the world of original storytelling. And I still do draw cartoons from time to time nowadays.
My passion for drawing on paper has translated to digital graphic design work also, where I am mostly self-taught. This think this feeds in well with copywriting – knowing what words to put in designs can be greatly influenced by the designs themselves.
