Liv Parkinson


Liv is a screenwriter from Liverpool. A recent graduate of the prestigious Screenwriting MA at the National Film and Television School, Liv’s work often delves into the issues facing young women, blending genres and twisting true events in a way which is both psychological and introspective.

Recently, Liv was selected for BBC’s ‘Northern Voices’, a scheme championing talented, emerging writers in the North of England, where she developed an original TV bible with the mentorship of the BBC Writersroom team.

Liv’s passion for writing began as a teenager, where she prolifically wrote poetry and short stories that were published in numerous anthologies. Her short play, a modern retelling of Frankenstein, won a National Theatre Playwriting Competition and one of her short stories was also selected as Runner-Up in a Short Story Competition run by Penguin. Shifting her focus to film, Liv wrote and produced several short films which were selected for BAFTA qualifying festivals such as Encounters, Aesthetica and Galway. Liv’s short film, Cutting, an exploration of weight cutting in combat sports, won a Royal Television Society Award, as well as ‘Best Student Film’ at the Learning on Screen Awards.

Most recently, Liv has written an animation as part of an anthology series with Nexus Studios, and she currently has a dystopian science-fiction TV series in development with MediaPro Studios.
