Andy Willoughby is a poet and playwright from Middlesbrough. He co-runs the Electric Kool-Aid Cabaret of the Spoken Word and Ek Zuban Press.
As a dramatist he often works within the community and often with hard to reach groups. He is a Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing at Teesside University. Writing from the past, Andy will lead a workshop investigating ways in which we can open up the past with creative writing with activities that draw on both personal memory and public history.
