    Carol McGuigan’s novel in progress Lying Apart won a New Writing North Northern Promise award in 2006. She has had seven plays broadcast on BBC Radio 4 and short fiction published in anthologies Tyneside Tales (Endpapers , 2005), Phantoms at the Phil 2 (Northern Gothic, 2005) and Mslexia. In addition to teaching, mentoring and directing, she also works as an actor – most visibly perhaps – and most fleetingly – as the mobile librarian in the film Billy Elliot. A strong association with Newcastle’s Live Theatre has led to a commission to adapt the late Julia Darling’s The Taxi Driver’s Daughter. Born in North East England she spent her teens in Apartheid South Africa, the territorial context of her novel.
