Sara Sherwood

Writer & Creative Writing Workshops

I'm Sara: Aries, vegetarian/vegan cusper, reader, writer, Dan Humphrey denier and pop fan. 

I have always been writing, but I began to take it more seriously after taking part in Write Like A Grrrl. I now run Leeds's WLAG workshops!

In my writing, I am interested in female friendship, the interior lives of women and pop music. My writing idols are Carol Shields, Sarra Manning and Curtis Sittenfeld.

One of my short stories is featured in Test Signal, an anthology of northern writing published by Dead Ink in 2021 and Best British Short Stories 2022.

Creative Writing Workshops

​Wanna write? I can help! 

In my workshops, I create supportive and caring environments for writers of all abilities, backgrounds and ambitions.

As well as facilitating Write Like A Grrrl in Leeds (a six-week creative writing course for women and non-binary people of all writing backgrounds, experiences and abilities), I also work with arts organisations and charities to design and facilitate one-off creative writing workshops, writing groups and courses.

Basically, I love supporting people to write, so if you want to chat then email me on
