…you’ve reached the website of Daniel Gray. Well, me. I am an author, screenwriter, podcaster, editor, researcher, presenter, video maker, writer-in-residence…
My 2022 projects include: still being Editor of Nutmeg magazine and presenting and editing their podcast and that of When Saturday Comes magazine; presenting another TV series for History Hit; releasing a new book commissioned by the STUC; writing a new football book with Bloomsbury, due for publication in November; giving Live Literature workshops in secondary schools; being a Writer in Residence in a Primary school. And here is my Guardian article about buying a turnstile from Bootham Crescent.
In 2021, my projects included: being Editor of Nutmeg magazine; presenting and editing their podcast and that of When Saturday Comes magazine; working on a book and podcast for the Scottish Trade Union Congress, released in 2022; presenting a TV series for History Hit; recording audiobooks of my three ‘football 50’ books; various writing and talking bits and bobs.
My 2020 work included: writing the book Extra Time published by Bloomsbury in October; writing the texts for the photo essay book Snapshot, published by Nutmeg and Arena in September; producing a book for Nil by Mouth; providing the words for a photographic book on behalf of Historic Environment Scotland, to be published in 2021; presenting and producing podcasts for Nutmeg and When Saturday Comes magazines; and being a Scottish Book Trust Writer-in-Residence at Hermitage Park Primary in Edinburgh. In April, I became Editor of Nutmeg magazine. Until football stopped due to Covid-19, I was very much enjoying writing match reports and features for Scotland on Sunday, like this one.
Prior to 2020, I have had eight books published and written for various newspapers and magazines. I also undertake copywriting jobs for print and online, and screenwriting work ranging from BBC documentaries to online advertising videos.
Since 2008, I have also worked as a television researcher, from development and pitches through to post-production.
In my constant efforts to tell stories well and keep my daughter in shoes, I have also presented on network television, anchored podcasts, made online video content, given hundreds of talks (sometimes in front of audiences), delivered workshops, facilitated events, chaired at literary festivals, been a writer-in-residence and hosted corporate away days.
I am freelance, usually available and always reasonably priced. Email me firstname.lastname@example.org, or find me on Twitter.
That’s quite enough words. Here are a few pictures of some of the creative things I’ve done, and logos of clients I’ve worked for:
