"The MATV programme is a dream come true for an aspiring writer – imagine, an entire year dedicated to creating and collaborating and learning and writing (and rewriting… lots of rewriting)!"

For Richard Flynn, one degree from GCU wasn’t enough; he graduated from Multimedia Journalism with First Class honours and went on to study MA TV Fiction Writing thanks to a scholarship from FremantleMedia UK. 

After successfully participating in a BBC Writersroom shadow scheme, Richard received his first television commission on River City and continues to write for the show. 

In 2015, Richard won "Best Short Script" at the European Independent Film Festival for a script he wrote whilst studying MA TV Fiction Writing. The project has since had a director and production company attached and has gone through development on Scottish Film Talent Network's Shorts2Features scheme. It is currently in development as a feature film.
