Mentorships, Friendships, Collaboration--Wednesday, 17th January 2018



For our January event, we hosted a very special panel of three women writers: Jill Dawson, Emma Sweeney and Emily Midorikawa to talk about how women writers influence, mentor, support and encourage each other - in literary history and today. Jill Dawson is the bestselling author of nine novels, most recently, The Crime Writer. Dawson is founder of the  prestigious Gold Dust writer-to-writer mentoring scheme. Emma Sweeney is a Gold Dust novelist and co-author with Emily Midorikawa of the recently published, A Secret Sisterhood, which uncovers four crucial collaborative friendships between women writers-- from Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte and George Eliot to Virginia Woolf. 

A new incarnation

After eight years of hosting the Salon, Sarah Glazer has returned to New York, passing the care of one of London's long running women's literary salons onto a capable group of writers who will now share hosting in North and West London. What started in the living room of Diane Middlebrook will continue in two new settings, which we hope will be equally congenial. We were delighted to have a chance to thank Sarah and celebrate her grace, generosity, intelligence and kindness at the Amanda Craig salon in June. We hope you will join us in the future.
