Kevin Phillips is a Leeds born minimalist writer. His journey began in local writing groups, which led to Open Mic events. After five months of Open Mic he featured on local TV, a reading and interview, and also local radio.
In 2017 he was shortlisted to six out of over two hundred northern writers by New Writing North for BBC radio 3's show The Verb (Verb New Voices). In early 2017 he was enrolled onto West Yorkshire Playhouse's (Now Leeds Playhouse) internal learning course Playwrights One. Despite having never written for theatre before West Yorkshire Playhouse further invited him onto FUSE Playwrights... A year-long mentoring program that has been extended to two years (ending in 2019). He has several works published online, and features in the anthology Mad Like Me ~ Tales From Tormented Minds.
