More about Zosia

A vibrant mix of Polish and English, Zosia has an exotic name and can do miraculous things with a cabbage, but speaks with a cockney accent. She makes and drapes her house in bunting, likes fairy lights and fairy tales and continues to obsess about the contents of the perfect sandwich. She might raise her head from a book occasionally to feed her long suffering children, but they don’t hold their breath, suspecting she prefers her imaginary characters to the real ones that surround her.


She has written lots of plays which have been broadcast on Radio 4 and produced for the stage, (once backstage) also in pubs and a park and has even been known to perform her work herself. Born an urban southerner who spent her childhood summers in rural Poland, she has lived most of her adult life in the north west and climbs Hoad hill every day, to a lighthouse with no lamp, to look out across the sands of Morecambe Bay. It should come as no surprise that she settled in a Cumbrian festival town famous for breaking the world record in pie fighting.  She loves to write and read and runs creatively stimulating events and courses for people who share the same passions.
