The principals of Stone Soup first met through the discipline of
Creative Writing, when they were both involved with the Waterfront
Writers, based on Plymouth's Barbican, in the late 90s. Nik Brookson
was, for many years, the facilitator for the group. David Doyle founded
and facilitated the Freedom Writers, a group based near Plymouth's
Freedom Park, and with close ties to the mental health charity MIND.
David and Nik have a wealth of experience writing and performing their
own works, as well as facilitating Creative Writing workshops in a
variety of settings. Their writing for performance is predominantly
multi-disciplinary, blending/blurring the boundaries with their shared
interests in Poetry, Music, Theatre, and Storytelling.
