Sarah Lewis – Creative Development Mentor
Half of Writers’ HQ and high priestess of getting shit done
Despite a lengthy career as a pathological procrastinator, Sarah is the queen of making things happen. One time award-winning environmental journalist, Sarah set up and launched an eco-ethical lifestyle magazine and a regional award scheme for environmental best practice.
She graduated in the top 20% of her MA creative writing class at UEA, won the David Higham Award, won an Arts Council grant to complete her first novel under the mentorship of critically acclaimed author Peter Hobbs, was one of the NWS10 talented early career writers, and gained a rarely given special mention in the BBC Short Story Award.
She then got completely sidetracked by Writers’ HQ, which she uses as a front for building a quiet community of radical writers who are going to revolutionise the world with awesomeness.
Sarah writes endlessly and is never satisfied, but as long as you do as she says not as she does, she will sort your shit right out. She loves yoga, having opinions, and being right. She occasionally tweets angrily at @fictionalsarah
