writer and encourager of writers


Greg has a degree in Drama and English from Goldsmiths College (London) and worked successfully in fringe theatre. He moved to Paris where he continued working in theatre and trained as an interpreter. He also lived an worked for shorter periods in New York, Los Angeles and Madrid.


Back in London he continued working as a translator and interpreter, as well as beginning a freelance career in publishing - proof-reading, indexing, copy-editing.


Later, he trained as a secondary school teacher and worked for almost a decade in comprehensive inner city education.


He helped his wife, Kate Mosse, to develop the innovative readers-and-writers website mosselabyrinth.co.uk - an entirely new way of building an online community that employed many of the techniques we take for granted today.


Out of this, he and Rachel Holmes created the Southbank Centre Creative Writing School - an open access program of evening classes, delivering MA level workshops to all comers. Simultaneously, he wrote and validated his own MA Creative Writing that he taught for four years for the University of Sussex at West Dean College.

He has delivered extremely successful writing workshops for Guardian Masterclasses, Edinburgh Book Festival, Cheltenham Festival, Chichester Festival Theatre and many others.


With trustee Peter Clayton, he is the founder and leader of the Criterion New Writing script development programme at the Criterion Theatre, London, giving free opportunities for script development work to a diverse community of writers, actors and directors.


In 2015, he returned to his first vocation - writing for theatre.
