Rich Dampare Smartt

Writer (Screen/Stage) Creative Producer


I'm a multidisciplinary creative writer. Orginally from South London, I'm now based in the West Midlands.

My approach to storytelling evolved from a visual style of spoken word I performed at venues and literature festivals up and down the UK.

Since then I've written and developed screenplays. As a first-gen writer who has relocated out of London, my latest work puts ideas of home to the question.

Right now I'm enjoying writing heightened drama with fantasy and adventure elements.
