Janet Morrison, from Jamaica, is VP-Creative of Dunlop Corbin Communications by profession and a writer by nature. Her real passion, however, is the scripting she does as a Social and Behaviour Change Communication specialist. She is also the winner of the 2012 BBC International Radio Playwriting Competition (English as a first language category) with her play, The Fisherman.
In April 2013, to celebrate the BBC World Service premiere of The FishermanJanet took up residence on the Commonwealth Writers’ website, writing a series of articles related to her play.

To celebrate Janet’s time on our website and her win we recorded these interviews with her.

"It's not that you're layering a story on top of the issue, but that the story comes from the issue. Because If you're examining people's lives in a very real way, then that's where your story is."
