She has worked as a copywriter for such companies as: Topshop, Fuller’s Brewery, Brighterkind Care Homes, and Red Tractor. Not only has she edited the content of web pages and fashion magazines, but she also worked as a proof-reader for marketing agencies whose services were used by such companies as: Barclays, Aviva, Mazda, and Pret A Manger. She has interviewed filmmakers and farmers, she has also commented for Polish TV. She has written more than 20 books covering various topics: from the most widely known murders, through LEGO blocks models, to The Archers TV series. In Krakow, Sarah will be working on a short stories collection about the lives of three different women.
Sarah is the third resident of Krakow – in May we hosted Brynjar Jóhannesson from Reykjavik, and in June – Sarah Stewart from Edinburgh.
The Krakow UNESCO City of Literature Residency Programme is addressed to young writers and rising talents from the Cities of Literature that belong to the UNESCO Creative Cities Network. The Programme grew out of deep conviction that the Network creates excellent opportunities to develop the connections and contacts, promotes mobility, and enables the writers to become more professional.
