Morgan’s writing career really gained traction in 2016 at ‘Commonword’ a literary organisation based in Manchester. There he wrote a flash fiction piece which was published in an anthology. That very piece served as an instrument for him being accepted onto the, ‘Creating The Bible’ short course at the National Film And Television School (NFTS) in 2017. There he completed a pilot, which culminated in him being accepted onto the BBC Writersroom and acquiring his first writing credit for BBC 1 Xtra that same year.
In early 2018 Morgan directed his first short film while on the NFTS’s ‘Diverse Directors course’, it was premièred at Channel 4 HQ in London and entered into a host of festivals. Later that year, Morgan was invited onto a BAME writer’s group held by The Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester.
Morgan is currently working across a number of short films and a slate of TV projects in development.
