Rob Young is an award-winning writer. He wrote the first online play for the Royal Shakespeare Company, in association with Google. Midsummer Nights' Dreaming appeared on 25 million tweets, trended 4th in the world and won two 'Internet Oscars'.

Rob's feature film, Miranda, starred Christina Ricci and won the Audience Award (main prize) at London's Raindance Film Festival. He has since been commissioned to write original scripts for the BBC, Channel 4, Filmfour, Radio 4, Working Title, Aardman, Sony, Ruby, Helkon, Endemic, Touchpaper, Baby Cow and The National Theatre.

Rob's adaptation of Hemingway's Pulitzer Prize winning novella, The Old Man and the Sea, won the Award for Artistic Excellence at England's biggest festival. He has written 12 plays for the stage, which have received kind reviews in the broadsheets, "A fascinating playwright", The Times.

Rob has written over 2,000 six-page script reports to encourage fledgling writers. He has mentored MA writing students for Kingston University, disabled writers for the charity Shape, poets for Apples and Snakes and underprivileged children for the East Side Educational Trust. The latter saw one schoolgirl's work shown on buses all over London.

Rob is also a designer and photographer. He was commissioned to design and produce an exhibition for the Cultural Olympiad, that toured Yorkshire during the Olympics.
