Extent4 boxes
Admin Biographical HistoryNina Rapi is a London-based, Greek-born playwright and short story writer. She studied sociology at LSE and took an MA in drama at Essex University. Her first play, Ithaka, had a performed presentation at the Riverside Studios, Hammersmith, in June 1989. She has since written many other plays and short stories. Nina Rapi was the editor of Gays and Lesbians in Theatre (GLINT) - a network of lesbian and gay practitioners working in the theatre. It was formed in 1991 with the aim to remedy the lack of debate and awareness of issues around sexuality in the theatre. GLINT produced newsletters (1992-3) and journals (1994). In 1993-94 she attempted to write a book on lesbian sex and sexuality, but the book was not realised due to a dispute over copyright ownership. Nina Rapi is the Founding Editor-in-Chief of BRAND, a literary magazine which specialises in short, leftfield and international writing. She was Senior Lecturer in creative writing at the University of Greenwich until August 2011.
