Andrzej Wawrowski – writer

I am a Bristol-based professional writer with many years’ experience in commercial communications. I have branched out into writing for performance for small-scale theatre productions. I’ve written a children’s book too – ‘Sapan and the Demon of Diwali’ – you can read it now on Amazon Kindle.


‘Sapan and the Demon of Diwali’

Portfolio image:
Inspired by the great Indian epic, The Ramayana – but quite a lot shorter! – this is a tale of young friendship, the awesome power of nature, and a shape-shifting world where nothing is ever quite what it seems. Join Sapan and Jeevika on a fantastic, funny, and scary journey as they battle the forces of darkness with the forces of light, a monkey, and a very useful rucksack!
