Needle Writers, Lewes featuring Umi Sinha


If you haven’t been to a Needle Writers event yet, now’s your chance. Their next event features a wealth of local talent, with readings from writers Emily Elgar,  Umi Sinha and poet Ian McEwan. All three will be sharing current works-in-progress.

Umi Sinha has an MA in Creative Writing and taught at the University of Sussex for ten years. She teaches creative writing classes and workshops, runs a performance storytelling club and offers a mentoring and manuscript appraisal service for writers called Writing Clinic. She has had short stories published, including in Cosmopolitan magazine and in a Serpent Tail’s anthology.

Her debut novel, Belonging has been listed for several prestigious awards, most notably the Author’s Club Best First Novel Award. She is currently working on a new novel set in Italy and India between 1943 and 1948.

Tickets for the event will be available to buy on the door for £5 (£3 for students and the unwaged).
