Podcast #10: James Oddy - Non-Fiction Writing Workshop
Leeds Lit Fest is delighted to have commissioned ten new and original podcasts for the 2020 Festival funded by Leeds Inspired, part of Leeds City Council.
Five podcasts were recorded during the Festival itself and feature writers leading sessions in the ‘Inspiring the City’ workshop series. Each podcast features the writer talking about their preparation for the workshops they were leading in a range of venues around the city, their own experience in the form, as well as interviews with, and writing by, workshop participants.
Born and still based in Leeds, James Oddy is an experienced non-fiction writer across a variety of
genres. Writing about sport and culture, his work has featured both online and in print for Prospect,
Boxing Monthly, Yorkshire Evening Post, Four Four Two, When Saturday Comes and Little White Lies,
amongst others. He is also the author of two books, the most recent of which, True Professional- The
Clive Sullivan Story, was a Guardian Sports Book of the Year in 2017. Alongside writing, James is also
an educator, working as an English teacher.
