Carl Oprey


I write prose fiction, journalism and stage and screen. My screenplays have been commissioned by Twentieth Century Fox, Channel 4, Scottish Screen and BBC Films. I’ve originated and developed television series in the UK and US. My stage plays have been performed in London, Los Angeles and New York. Short fiction has been published in Queer Episodes: An Anthology of Poetry and Prose (Little Episodes, 2014), and longlisted in the BBC National Short Story Award (2016). My novel-in-progress, The Man Who, was longlisted for the Polari Prize (2012). Print and radio journalism has appeared in Ragazine, G Scene, KPFK Los Angeles and IMRU Radio, Los Angeles. I’ve had my work performed at festivals and events in Brighton, London, Liverpool, Los Angeles and New York. I’ve lived and worked in New York, Los Angeles, London, Liverpool, Moscow, Jordan, Cairo, Kerala, Salerno and Geneva. I currently live in Liverpool, where I teach at the Liverpool Screen School (LJMU) and am developing a literacy project with Everton Library.
