Lianne Herbert 


I am a freelance writer, playwright and blogger who happens to be deaf. I am based in Leeds, England.


I have been a creative writer since 2011 after completing my BA Music and Arts Management degree with a 2:1.


Regular articles for ‘the world’s most popular deaf blog’ - The Limping Chicken - are written by myself. You can view my articles here.


In my personal blog, you will find many topics close to my heart.


What drives me to write?


I feel compelled to write, as I believe there are many untold stories concerning disability, race and mental health issues. Deafness in particular is a disability that many can’t comprehend. I have personal experience in all these areas, so I understand how sensitive these topics are.
I currently has connections with Deafinitely Theatre, Peepal Tree Press and West Yorkshire Playhouse. Find out more here.


Why should you hire me?

I want my writing to be a starting point for conversations. For your writing projects I can do this for you also. Especially on the topics close to my heart for that personal touch.
