In this informative and entertaining workshop, Sara Sheridan, author of more than twenty books, will share her top tips on ‘narrative drive’. How do you make readers keep turning the page? How do you make publishers take notice? 

Sara Sheridan is definitely one of the best speakers on writing we’ve had the pleasure to listen to. Not only does she know what she’s talking about, but she imparts her knowledge with eloquence, humour and grace.” (Charlotte Johnson, Chair, Skye Reading Room & presenter of CuillinFM’s Reading Room Radio Show.)

Sara Sheridan, named as one of the Saltire Society’s most Influential Scottish women, past and present, is known for the Mirabelle Bevan Mysteries, a series of historical novels based on Georgian and Victorian explorers, and has written non-fiction on the early days of Queen Victoria’s marriage and the historical background to Jane Austen’s novel Sanditon for the ITV series of the same name. 

In 2018, she remapped Scotland according to women’s history to memorialize our forgotten foremothers. With a fascination for uncovering forgotten stories, she is an active campaigner.
