Event Details

Ever been curious about how a book makes its journey from an idea in a writer’s head to the shelves of a bookshop or library? Join North West author, Sarah Butler to find out about her writing life and journey to publication. Sarah’s third novel, Jack and Bet was published this year.

Whether you’re a budding writer or someone who just can’t get enough of new books, sign up for the first virtual author event from Time to Read. Tickets are available now. There will be time for conversation and questions.

Sarah Butler has three novels published by Picador in the UK: Ten Things I’ve Learnt About Love, Before the Fire plus Jack and Bet. Her short fiction and poetry have been published in anthologies (Picador, Route, Tindal Street Press, Pen and Ink Press) and journals (including Butcher’s Dog and Bare Fiction).

Sarah has been awarded an Arts Council ‘time to write’ award, held two Hawthornden writing fellowships, and a fellowship at Chateau de Lavigny in Switzerland.

She runs writing workshops in a variety of settings, including schools, parks, libraries and museums.

She has worked with writers as far afield as Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and Stockholm, Sweden. Sarah joined Manchester Metropolitan University as Lecturer in Creative Writing in June 2018.
