Terry Westby-NunnA little skew
Filmmaker & Writer
A passion for the art of storytelling
through words and the moving image.
As a seasoned television professional, I conceptualise, research, direct, edit, produce, and script.
In between TV work, I am working towards a PhD in Creative Writing. I write novels, the odd poem, short stories, articles, and essays.
I’m fond of caramelised onions, thinking about the world, and belly-laughs. I adore dark tales, the carnivalesque, and unlikeable protagonists.
The Sea of Wise Insects
My debut novel, The Sea of Wise Insects, won the 2012 University of Johannesburg Creative Writing Prize – debut category.
As with my video work, I’m a versatile writer. I script copy for clients, pen poems, and write edgy novels.
For my PhD in Creative Writing I’m examining ecofeminism in South African speculative fiction.
