Firstly, I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Fergus Evans, and I joined the team about a month ago as Project Manager for the Creative Future Literary Awards. A little bit about myself…
I am a poet, theatre-maker, consultant, and independent producer. Prior to working with Creative Future I was Executive Director at Camden People’s Theatre, and have worked in senior roles with a number of leading arts organisations. I am an Associate Artist with The Albany in London my debut collection ‘On Euclid Ave’ was published by Manchester-based Flapjack Press.

I am really excited to be joining Creative Future, especially as I’ll be looking after a brilliant project! For those of you who aren’t aware, the Creative Future Literary Awards is a national literary competition and high profile awards ceremony which celebrates talented writers who lack opportunities due to mental health issues, disability, health or social circumstance. We have some very exciting local and national partners lined up for the 2015 awards, so watch this space! You can also follow us on Twitter or like our page on Facebook .
