About me

I seem to have been scribbling stuff on bits of paper for as long as I can remember.

But it’s only since the 1960s that I’ve been earning a living from writing.

Since then I’ve contributed to a hatful of house magazines, written gazillions of press ads and a clutch of corporate brochures, rattled out a fair few radio and tv commercials and, more recently, produced loads of stuff (I believe it’s called ‘content’) for the web.

Dammit, I’ve even written a screenplay!* And a children’s story (which you might find if you Google ‘Clinker The Zink And The Secret Of Spang’).

Lately, I’ve started blogging. If that’s of interest, you can check it out via my website at www.francisglibbery.com.

I’m also one of the founders of Creative Ampersand (www.creativeampersand.co.uk), a small but enthusiastic communications consultancy keen to work with anyone who shares our belief in the value of creativity.

*My ‘pitch’ for my screenplay of THE MAN WHO WAS THURSDAY – based on a novel by GK Chesterton –was one of the seven featured at Wordstock13. Watch this space for developments ….

The long read: Vacuous management-speak is easily laughed off – but is there a real cost to talking rubbish?
