Ashleigh Nugent – Writer on the Bloc

Monday, October 4, 2021

We are delighted to announce that our next Writer on the Bloc will be writer, performer, and Creative Director at RiseUp CiC, Ashleigh Nugent!

He has written for poetry anthologies, academic journals, magazines, blogs and theatre.

His latest work, ‘LOCKS’, is a novel based on the time he spent his 17th birthday in a Jamaican detention centre. ‘LOCKS’ won the 2013 Commonword Memoir Competition. Both the book and his one-man show have received rave reviews from audiences, magazines and blogs. Liverpool Literary Agency is currently working to secure mainstream distribution for ‘LOCKS’.

Ashleigh’s company, RiseUp, empowers prisoners to turn their lives around by taking control of their own thoughts, feelings, and actions.

Ash will be live on Monday 4th October to introduce himself to the Writer’s Bloc and give us all a taste of what we can expect with an In Conversation event.

The Writer’s Bloc will also host a series of Bloc Socials that will act as a place to expand on creative ideas, share experiences and perspectives, bounce around ways of overcoming creative issues, and discuss a piece of work shared by the writer.
