Publishing your First Novel with Gill Thompson

 Gill Thompson

Gill will be talking about the research and long gestation of THE OCEANS BETWEEN US, of her experience in publishing her first novel and running some simple workshops. Gill’s creative writing blog at www.wordkindling.co.uk is well worth checking out for tips and advice.

Gill Thompson is an English lecturer who completed an MA in Creative Writing at Chichester University. Her first novel, THE OCEANS BETWEEN US, tells the heart-breaking story of a mother and son separated by war and by continents, fighting their way back to each other. The first three chapters were longlisted for the Mslexia novel award and the first page of her second novel was selected to feature in Mslexia magazine. THE OCEANS BETWEEN US has reached number one in Historical Australian and Oceanian Fiction on Amazon. Gill lives with her family in West Sussex where she teaches English to college students.
