Adult and Childrens Author, Screenwriter, Playwright and Poet
Many moons (and surprisingly few pay cheques) ago, Jamie Forbes was the winner of the Bicentennial Young Playwrights Award for the drama Sleep Easy Chill, and was selected to attend the 1988 International Festival Of Young Playwrights for the comedy The Incomplete Shakespeare. Since then he has had many plays and musicals performed. He has also written for radio (Mister Jones), television (BackBerner, Lil Horrors ) and film (Blood Spill). He has had several short stories published and also works as a journalist, reviewer (Metro), cartoonist (The Big Issue), script editor and consultant, and as an actor (Neighbours), songwriter and musician.
Jamie has worked extensively with young people in the theatre and holds a certificate as a teachers aide and Level III specialist in Early Childhood Development. He wrote and currently presents the comedy workshop for high schools Whats So Funny? with Peter Dodds. What's So Funny? is a two part, day long worship focussed on comedy in all its forms throughout the ages. See our Speaker's section for more information about these workshops.
