Nikki Wordsmith,

Social Media Coordinator


Hello, I'm Nikki, I’m overjoyed to join Scott Martin Productions as the Social Media Coordinator. After spending many interesting years living and working in the arts and music worlds of Manchester, I have moved further Ooop North to be nearer my family while I raise my own daughter. It is magical to be living a real honest to goodness slice of Lancashire village life. And after meeting Lesley things have just got better.  Helping writers and writing groups in the North of England connect with readers and find their audience and generally make a positive impact in the wider community is something I hold very dear to my heart. It’s exactly what the world needs - more writers. Smiley face.  We have many ongoing online conversations that you can be a part of. Sign up if you want to hear about our latest publications, events, competitions, plus much more. If you have some words you want to publish, an event idea, are a distributor, a book shop or just want to share an interesting wordy tidbit with us, get in touch! Happy writing!
