“… an astonishingly smart writer.” Neil Gaiman

Welcome to my website. I’m Sarah Salway, a British poet, novelist, journalist, writing mentor and speaker.

As well as my own creative writing, I have a particular interest in Writing and Wellbeing, 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.
