Tom Jordan

After working for more than 15 years in travel publishing, writing for National Geographic Traveller, Sunday Times Travel Magazine, Which Travel? and CNN, among others, and editing travel books, Tom recently made the move into script writing in the only logical way possible – writing for Series 3 of Go Jetters (CBeebies).

He is currently working on several children's animation projects at various stages of development.

His debut radio comedy/drama Yellow Vision has been selected by Script Yorkshire for production and broadcast in early 2021.

He is the author of the voice of John Keats at Guy’s Hospital in London, part of the international Talking Statues project, bringing famous statues to life alongside other writers such as Anthony Horrowitz and Jeremy Paxman, and is currently developing his first theatrical play in conjunction with Sheffield Crucible.
