Stephen S. Thompson is a highly acclaimed novelist and screenwriter of Jamaican descent. His feature-length single drama Sitting In Limbo was broadcast on BBC1 in June 2020. Produced by Left Bank Pictures and directed by Stella Corradi, the Independent called it “…a gripping, upsetting and tenderly told dramatic memoir of one man’s ordeal during the Windrush scandal. Its timing could not have been better.” Next up, Stephen will be developing original crime drama Blood for Me+You and a series for Gaumont based on his novel Missing Joe. Stephen’s first novel Toy Soldiers was published in 2000 and described by Hanif Kureishi as ‘beautifully written, painfully honest and deeply affecting’. Stephen has also written for The Observer, The Voice, Wasafiri, Five Dials and Arena Magazine. He is the editor and publisher of the online literary journal The Colverstone Review, and co-founder of the creative writing retreat, The Page. He has lectured in Creative Writing at Birkbeck College and the University of Edinburgh, and taught screenwriting at Central Film School in London.
