Sarah Rayner is one of nearly 70 authors who've come together to form the collective, Beach Hut Writers, with a view to supporting one another through the writing process as well as doing joint author events.
'All our members are published authors who are variously energised, distracted and inspired by the UK’s liveliest seaside city,' Sarah explains. 'Originally brought together through Facebook by our love for the written word, between us we cover almost every genre, from fantasy to crime and non-fiction to poetry. Some are Sunday Times’ bestsellers, others highly-respected in the literary world, and a few are poised on the brink of stardom with agented books awaiting publication, but all are professional writers living in Brighton and Hove with something unique to share.'
Beach Hut Writers launched with a sell-out event at Brighton Waterstones. Joining Sarah (third from left) were (L to R) Emlyn Rees, Julia Crouch, Lizzie Enfield, MD Lachlan and author of 'The Key' Simon Toyne, and several other Beach Hut Writers were in the audience.
