“… an astonishingly smart writer.Neil Gaiman

Welcome to my website. I’m Sarah Salway, a British poet, novelist, short story writer, journalist and writing tutor.

As well as my own creative writing, I have a particular interest in Writing and Wellness, and offer courses, workshops and one-to-one mentoring in this field. Writing has been my own thread through life since I was given my own little five year diary – with a golden key – as a child. I can’t always spell properly, but my journal doesn’t mind, and now I  love to work with people to help them rediscover the joy of both making up stories and also making sense of their worlds.

Here you will find news of workshops and readings, book details, and my writing blog. You can go and look at my books  here.
