Amanda J. Allen has an MA in Writing for Script and Screen and is currently working towards her practice based creative arts research, at the School of Arts, into 'The Forgotten Generation'. Particularly how those of the 'Silent Generation' are not considered in target audience profiles or production. Using transmedia techniques, she aims to re-engage this forgotten sector and challenge audience profiling and programme making within media production. 

Her research takes her into the realms of scriptwriting, transmedia and gerontology. 

Alongside her research, she is a freelance storyteller of multiple mediums and a writing coach at The Coffeehouse Writer.
