West Sussex Writers: Publishing your First Novel

14th November 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

£3 – £5

Publishing your First Novel with Gill Thompson
West Sussex Writers meeting on Thursday 14th November 2019

West Sussex Writers invites members and non-members to attend a talk by Gill Thompson. Gill will be talking about the research and long gestation of THE OCEAN BETWEEN US, of her experience in publishing her first novel and running some simple workshops. Gill’s creative writing blog at www.wordkindling.co.uk is well worth checking out for tips and advice.

Gill Thompson is an English lecturer who completed an MA in Creative Writing at Chichester University. Her first novel, THE OCEANS BETWEEN US, tells the heart-breaking story of a mother and son separated by war and by continents, fighting their way back to each other. The first three chapters were longlisted for the Mslexia novel award and the first page of her second novel was selected to feature in Mslexia magazine. THE OCEANS BETWEEN US has reached number one in Historical Australian and Oceanian Fiction on Amazon. Gill lives with her family in West Sussex where she teaches English to college students.

The West Sussex Writers meeting will take place 19.30 on Thursday 14th November, at the Church Hall, Goring Methodist Church, Bury Drive, Goring, BN12 4XB.

Tickets £5 for non-members, £3 for members.
