In conversation with Agent Christina Pickworth, Kayleigh will be sharing her journey into the industry and career so far and creating her critically acclaimed series In My Skin, offering behind the scenes insight to the making of the series from idea to screen. Kayleigh will also be discussing writing for other drama series such as Killing Eve and Chloe.

It has gone on to garner BAFTA Awards for Best Drama Writer and Best Drama Series 2022; BAFTA Cymru Awards for Best Writer, Best Television Drama and Best Director in 2020 and 2022; and the RTS Award for Best Drama Series in 2021 and 2022. Kayleigh was also the recipient of the WFTV ScreenSkills Writing Award 2022.

Kayleigh is now adapting Jen Beagin's Big Swiss for HBO, HyperObject and A24 in the US, as well as adapting Rosa Rankin Gee’s Dreamland for Sister Pictures and developing a second original series with Expectation Entertainment.
