A workshop with Sophia Tobin

A workshop with Sophia Tobin

Join novelist Sophia Tobin for a creative writing workshop that uses the Brontë collection for inspiration – there will be a unique opportunity to see some items up close and then write prose or poetry inspired by the Brontë relics.  It is suitable for beginners or more experienced writers. Sophia Tobin is the Library Secretary for the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths. She previously worked for a Bond Street antique dealer for six years, specialising in silver and jewellery. Inspired by research into a real life eighteenth-century silversmith, Tobin began to write her first novel, The Silversmith’s Wife, which was shortlisted for the Lucy Cavendish College Fiction Prize and was a Sunday Times bestseller. Sophia’s latest novel, The Vanishing, published in early 2017, has been praised by critics for its ‘brilliantly Brontë-esque’ tone and plot.

Tickets £25/£20 concessions and Brontë Society members.  Please book in advance at www.bronte.org.uk/whats-on or by calling 01535 642323.
