Arts Emergency

Julie Bower


After studying drama at university I worked in TV as an assistant producer before becoming a sketch and screenwriter. My first short film received British Council funding; this and subsequent shorts have been screened at festivals worldwide, including LA Comedy Shorts, Soho Rushes, Cannes in a Van, CoFilmic (Winner: Audience Award) and BAFTA. I went on to write plays and sketches for stage and radio, my first sitcom pilot was broadcast on Radio 4 in 2011 and my first television sitcom was commissioned by CBBC in 2013.

I’m thrilled to be part of Arts Emergency and very excited by all the brilliant work Neil and everyone is doing. Please get in touch if you need any help or advice on getting into screen writing, comedy writing or working in Film and TV. I won’t have all the answers but promise I’ll try!
