Olivia Waring


Olivia Waring is a screenwriter from Hove, currently based in London. After studying English at York, she did a Masters in Scriptwriting at UEA and won the Malcolm Bradbury continuation prize for her first screenplay NOCTURNAL in 2014.

After Olivia graduated, the screenplay was picked up by a producer and less than a year later it made the final twelve on the Film London Microwave development scheme. In early 2016, director Nathalie Biancheri came on board with the project and it is currently in pre-production, scheduled to shoot in November 2017. Olivia is now writing her next screenplay, a school-set black comedy, and preparing to shoot her first short film. When she's not doing that she works as a journalist in London.
