Shoreham Wordfest 2019: The Power of Research with Umi Sinha


Umi Sinha features not one or twice, but thrice at this year’s Shoreham Wordfest. She will be joined by producer and artist Amy Zamarripa Solis and author Sue Walker to discuss the best way to uncover and share personal histories within writing projects.

Umi Sinha is a writer, tutor and oral storyteller. She has taught creative writing for twenty years, including at the universities of Sussex and Brighton, and now teaches on the Creative Writing Programme at New Writing South. She also co-runs an oral storytelling club for adults called The Guest House Storytellers. She is currently working on a new novel set in India and Italy during and after the Second World War.

Her debut novel, Belonging (Myriad, September 2015), has been listed for several prestigious awards, most notably the Author’s Club Best First Novel Award.

Umi is currently working on a new novel set in Italy and India between 1943 and 1948.

This event will be held at 11.45 am at The Ropetackle Cafe in Shoreham. It is informal and tickets are not needed. For more information, click HERE.
