Natalie Mirosch is a writer of Ukrainian-German descent who was born and bred in Rotherham. The first of her family to go to university it was here that she unlocked her passion for screenwriting using her spare time alongside her degree in Forensic Science to take free online scriptwriting classes. She has since written a number of short film and television scripts, audio plays and self-described crap poetry. In 2021 she won a place on the inaugural Sky Writes screenwriting programme produced by Sky Studios in association with New Writing North. With a passion for representation, her writing aims to tell authentic stories that move the needle.
‘I can’t put into words what it means for me to win this award. What it will do for me not only in a professional sense but on a personal level regarding my confidence as a writer is ineffable.’
