Freelance Writer & Board Member

Jayne Kirkham

Jayne’s writing for children spans thirty years
And evokes laughter and nonsense and one or two tears.
To protect kids and their media, she volunteers
And lobbies in parliament; so buy her a few beers…

A writer with over 30 years’ experience working with and writing for children and young people, Jayne has worked on projects ranging in size from small conservation films in Africa to international feature films. Her most recent credits in the UK include BBC’s Cbeebies’ ‘Tee and Mo’, ‘Bing’ and original poems and stories for radio and online. She is a member of the CMF Board and volunteers as Political Liaison and Clerk to the All Party Parliamentary Group for Children’s Media and the Arts.
