Jon Barton
Head of Writing


Jon Barton

Subjects taught by Jon:
Creative Writing
Script Writing
Writing for Film

Jon is a freelance writer who has worked across film, television and radio. He holds an MA in Writing and Script Development from Exeter University and has also studied at the Royal Court Theatre as part of their writers group.

Jon has written plays for the Old Vic Theatre (performing to an industry audience of twelve hundred people), Almeida Theatre, The Bush Theatre and HighTide Festival Theatre. His real passion is writing for screen and he has worked with BBC and Kudos, and received funding from the BFI to work with a script editor to develop his screenplay.

Jon really enjoys learning from other writers - particularly new ones - and sees his courses as a space to share ideas with like-minded people. His classes focus on the art of storytelling, and are fun and informative with plenty of feedback along the way.

“I'm passionate about writing and I want it to be infectious. I think people have this idea that doing a writing class is three hours of silence in an empty room, writing metaphors. Nope! I like to move fast and keep it fun. It's all to do with teaching writers about storytelling form and structure, and how to use their instincts”

“He's simply a brilliant teacher. Clearly knows his stuff. He's patient and encouraged me to flourish.”
E. Lewis, Creative Writing - Beginners
