Nadia Gasper is a writer and story consultant. She has written a variety of stage, screen and online scripts, page and performance poetry, articles, blogs and essays throughout her career. Her work has been commissioned by Manchester’s Contact Theatre and the BBC. She was also a member of the Royal Court Theatre Young Writers’ Programme.
In 2009, Nadia left Manchester and returned to London as a writer and researcher for a British Youth Council documentary, which was aired at the BFI and BAFTAs. Simultaneous to her documentary-making pursuits, Nadia’s stage play ‘Toro and the Storm’ was commissioned by Kori Arts Youth Charity, who used the script for educational forum theatre projects that were successful in Tanzania, China and the UK. Subsequently, Nadia joined the Southbank Centre’s marketing department and was acquainted with their resident youth group, SE1 United, where she became involved in a range of writing programmes and led creative workshops. Nadia is also a writer in residence for the Beddow and Battini art collective — an interdisciplinary London-based group. They have been awarded a variety of commissions for art exhibitions in London and Russia.
The writer recently completed a Masters in Critical Arts Management and has used her academic experience to realise her long-term freelancing passion, Scribble Ink—a story consultancy dedicated to mentoring writers throughout their creative process. Nadia has a deep and abiding interest in the fusion of creativity and new media. She is an avid short story writer who sees the web series format as the ‘millennial punk.’
