Will Haynes started his career in the UK film industry as a runner on high-profile feature films, before progressing to various supporting roles (such as production assistant, producer’s assistant, assistant coordinator and assistant director: many different terms for fetching coffee from Starbucks), while directing and producing independent music videos and short films, before absconding to travel and write.
He has completed one novel ‘Shoot The Runner’ and a collection of short stories. He is currently undertaking his second novel- while hoping to get the first one published at some point in the not-too-distant future. His short story ‘The People’s Republic’ has recently been awarded both The Excellence In Contemporary Narrative Award and The Diamond Award for The Labello Press International Short Story Competition. Because of this, he is now unbearable to be around.
