I’m Daley James Francis, a storyteller from Leicester who writes for everything – the Internet, Screen, Stage and the Page. I have written and produced short films, wrote for countless websites, magazines, newspapers and agencies – including the Huffington Post, and I pride myself on my storytelling abilities! Check out some of my past work here.
Below is the teaser trailer for the latest short film that I wrote and executive produced. It’s called ROCKY ROAD…
Maybe I can write something for you, or we can collaborate on a project?
Check out my Services page to see what I can do for you. You can hire me for a blog post, a short film script or just about any form of storytelling you like. All I will attempt to do is make it shine with vibrancy and personality. It’s at the heart of everything I do. Nobody wants to read something that’s dull, and in my mind, there is no such thing as a boring niche, only boring storytellers!
I haven’t stopped writing since I was a kid, and I set this website up in May 2010 to keep my writing skills sharpened during my uni days studying Creative Writing and Journalism. I graduated in 2012, but you can still read the stuff I wrote during this period – on everything from film, boxing, writing, music and theatre – on the site. It’s important to have an upward trajectory, and as I have improved my storytelling, I think that it’s important to be able to look back and see how far I’ve come.
It’s essential for all writers to keep evolving and trying new things. It’s the only way to get better. In my writing career so far, I’ve successfully managed to:
- Write for Publications I have read + admired for years, including the Huffington Post
- Conduct writing workshops in schools and colleges
- Write and Produced short films that have been shown at Festivals
- Write for online and print publications
As far as I’m concerned, I am in a privileged position to be able to tell stories, collaborate with great people on creating pieces of work that we can all be proud of, and continue to learn and keeping evolving as a storyteller. Why not get in touch and we can help each other out on each of our journeys?
Get in touch with me at @DaleyJFrancis on Twitter, Linkedin and on Google+. I also have a Facebook page. I’m always looking to converse with writers, filmmakers, playwrights and all other creative peeps.
