Write Night is moving online!

Evie Wyld will be in conversation over Facebook Live with Wayne Herbert on the processes of (re-)writing, discovery and editing in her novel-writing practice. Get an insight into how her work has evolved and changed during the writing process. Even award-winning writers don’t always get it right in the first draft. Join us for what will be a fascinating insight into a successful author’s writing world.

Praise for The Bass Rock

A multilayered masterpiece; vivid, chilling, leaping jubilantly through space and time, it’s a jaw dropping novel that confirms Wyld as one of our most gifted young writers. — Alex Preston, Observer

Vividly told and compelling… The Bass Rock…is beautifully written and powered by blistering force and righteous anger. –Alice O’Keefe, Bookseller
