Mark MacNicol has written, directed and produced multiple stage plays in his career to become a well-respected artist in his native Glasgow community. He is a MA TV alumni currently working on a feature film called Dreaded Light.

"Straight after I graduated I spent three months in Hollywood with British film producer Julia Verdin. That trip wouldn’t have happened had I not taken the course. The support I received from the creative, academic and support departments during the course was of a very high standard."
Mark MacNicol, MA TV Fiction Writing 2012

Mark is the author of two novels, Coconut Badger and Finn McCool Rises, the former of which was long listed by the Guardian for their first book prize in 2011.

With the support of Playwrights' Studio, he devised a monthly workshop for new writing in Glasgow called Stage to Page. Mark is also passionate about theatre attendance from within socially excluded areas.
