Author Jane Wallman-Girdlestone completed a final draft of her new novel, Sleight of Hand, with help from flip Artists. She met with sector organisations including Scottish Book Trust and Creative Scotland and received mentoring support through SPARK literary agency. Such professional support and advice provided Jane with a better understanding of the world of literature and publishing.
Through flip Artists, Jane also took part in a writing training course with Moniack Mhor (with tutors including Val McDermid) and began development work on two new manuscripts. Moniack Mhor provided Jane with further support through a bursary place on a further course in winter 2015. In 2015 Jane was also able to present her writing at the annual writer’s event Bloody Scotland. flip Artists also helped Jane set up a new website with which she can promote her writing.
Jane Wallman-Girdlestone is a published novelist and writer in spirituality and well being. She is a chaplain in NHS Highland and an Honorary Research Fellow at University of Aberdeen.
