Part of The Pumphouse

Molly Naylor writes poems that speak frankly and boldly about learning how to live. Part confession, part manifesto; her debut poetry collection, Badminton (published by Burning Eye), is a book that manages to celebrate humanity whilst despairing of its ugly bits.

A scriptwriter, theatre maker and director too, Molly is the co-writer and creator of Sky One sitcom After Hours, has been commissioned by the BBC, the RSC, the BFI, and Battersea Arts Centre as well as adapted her critically acclaimed solo show Whenever I Get Blown Up I Think Of You for BBC Radio 4. She has performed her stories and poems at festivals and events all over the world and is the co-director of sell-out storytelling night True Stories Live.

'Brave, funny, tough and beautiful writing'
