This workshop will be preceded with a talk by Sarah Pullen, author of A Mighty Boy, a memoir about love and loss. It is Sarah’s account of her family's journey after their ten-year-old son Silas was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour. Sarah will talk about writing this profoundly moving and honest account of coming to terms with terminal illnes, death and grief, and about learning to let go. She will also talk about the process of getting published and her own experience of  crowdsource publishing with Unbound.Sarah's talk is a free event. There will be a retiring collection after the event with all proceeds to go to The Silas Pullen Fund – a charity set up under the umbrella of The Brain Tumour Charity, for which Sarah has raised in excess of £500,000.
