Lowri Potts

Lowri’s background is in television production, journalism, training and administration. She worked for thirteen years as a freelance television researcher in ITV entertainment in England before moving to Scotland with her two sons and musician husband. From 1989 to 1993 she established the first Scottish office for the Producers Association for Cinema and Television (PACT) in Glasgow and went on to devise and administer television producer courses. From 1998 Lowri returned to production to research and write content for interactive media for three Scottish millennium science exhibitions.

In 2002 her first short screenplay, Frozen Assets, was selected for production via the Short Film Factory’s Eight and a Half screenwriting scheme, and won prizes for sound and drama. In 2013 she received an award from the Imagining Natural Scotland Fund to produce an interactive installation called ‘Dreaming Scotland’.

She has also worked widely in the voluntary sector, founding a lunchtime reading club for 10/12 year olds at her local school, and a creative writing club in the café of her local bookshop. From 2004-6 she was the first regional administrator for the Scottish branch of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), promoting services and devising events for members.

She has qualified as a relational dynamics coach and a Trinity College Arts Award adviser. Since 2005, she has worked part time as an adviser for the Cultural Enterprise Office in Glasgow www.culturalenterpriseoffice.co.uk

Current writing projects include children’s novels Stowaway, and Blood and Milk.

Lottery and Lost in a Book are plays for performance in libraries that celebrate literacy and reading (and explore dyslexia). More info on http://www.spinningpizzaarts.org/ and https://flyingpizza.wordpress.com/

She lives in Glasgow with her musician husband and can sometimes be seen on a bike (but not racing and not in the rain, and preferably in the Trossachs with a nice sandwich in back pack)
