William Gallagher running a school writing course

Hello, I'm William Gallagher

I'm Deputy Chair of the Writers’ Guild. I run the Room 204 Buddying Programme, write Doctor Who radio dramas and am the author of 19 non-fiction books including the British Film Institute’s BFI TV Classics: The Beiderbecke Affair. My first collection of short stories is due to be published in 2021. I once had afternoon tea on a Russian nuclear submarine and regrets calling the place a dive.
