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.

Amanda Craig returns to the Salon to read from her work in progress, a novel that follows up some of the characters from The Lie of the Land, a book India Knight in the Times called “terrific, page-turning, slyly funny” and Marion Keyes declared “absolutely magnificent.” Craig is one of our leading voices, an award-winning journalist and author of seven novels, a widely-publisher reviewer and champion of women’s writing.
