Medium Biography

Paul Dunn lives in the North-East of England. He has been writing for as long as he can remember, and was particularly encouraged by his 3rd Year English teacher who wrote at the end of one of his essays, “You do write very well – persevere with your ambition.” He has since written for all kinds of publications, including Spark Magazine, the Sunderland Echo, the Shields Gazette, and the Remotegoat website. He was also a resident writer for the BBC on the radio sketch show Grin Up North.

He is the author of many plays and musicals for the stage. These include the official adaptation of Catherine Cookson’s The Cinder Path, which received its world premiere at The Customs House in South Shields – Cookson’s birthplace – in 2015, as well as the sci-fi musical comedy Voyage From Titan which premiered at The White Bear in London, and Joey Cotter and the Lost Mineral, a musical comedy-drama for young people and drama groups.

He created the sketch group Don’t Trust Salmon which played at the Edinburgh Festival, and the radio sketch show Paul & Nessa’s Happy Hour, airing on Sunderland’s Spark FM in 2015-16.

Paul also works as an actor, appearing in countless productions up and down the country since he graduated from Redroofs Theatre and Film School in 1997. He won the Best Performance award at the 2015 WOW awards for his one-man show I Left My Heart In Roker Park.
