In Conversation event . . . with me!

I shall be trundling (wrong verb) down the motorway to do this event with the Creative Writing North West group.

Here are some of the details if you fancy coming along!

  • Saturday, August 22, 2015

    2:30 PM to 4:30pm

    Friends Meeting House, 6 Mount Street , Manchester (map)

    GBP17.00/per person


  • In this session, Dr Sarah Dobbs will discuss her writing process and practice from initial idea, to full-length novel. Sarah will explore how she developed and created compelling characters, handled challenging narratives and also discuss the importance of editing. There will be some useful advice on publishers and agents, along with an open Q and A session at the end.

    Sarah’s novel, Killing Daniel, was nominated for the Guardian’s ‘Not the Booker prize’ in 2013.
