I’m John Wesley Stammers. I’m a freelance writer who has written features for the specialist travel magazine Amazing Destinations and copy for entertainment industry clients. I authored promotions for Ghostbusters: Afterlife, No Time To Die and Spider-Man: No Way Home, which appeared in national newspapers, including The Sun and The Irish Daily Mail, and various consumer magazines.

I’m available to commission, and I’m particularly interested in writing features on culture, creativity and mental health. Or you can hire me to write copy for your website, blog and social media.

I also write fiction and poetry. In 2021, I won the Essex Book Festival’s Green Shoots Writing Competition for an eco-themed flash-fiction. A flash-fiction I wrote in 2015 was also published by the University of Essex newspaper.

I have a BA in Creative Writing and an MA in Playwriting from the University of Essex. (But don’t ask about my thesis, ask me about the shows I produced and books I edited instead.)

The best way to keep up with me and my work is to subscribe to my newsletter. If you insist on following me on social media, I recommend my Instagram.
