Will writes to satisfy his existential angst, and this normally bears out in his stories’ introspective themes and cyclical narratives. On the occasion successfully productive, Will has written stories such as: 900 Words (to tell you that I love you), Aleastory, The Archivist, and The Inevitable Heat Death of Daniela Ashe. Will collaborates with the theatre company Unclaimed Creatures, writing in-situ and site-responsive pieces that form the body of text for audio-walk performances and site-specific installations. He has undertaken a script reading course with The Script Factory and recently completed City University, London’s Short Story Writing course.
