Sarah Miles

Sarah has many passions in life: cookery, yoga, The Archers, gin…but it is the Arts that makes her tick. She is a trained actress and started writing publicly (via blogging) in 2010. Shortly afterwards, she was selected to guest blog for Caitlin Moran’s website for the launch of her books How to be a Woman and Moranthology.

She rekindled her love of creative writing in 2013, going on to be a finalist in the BiB Awards (writing category) and won a national writing competition from a prompt set by Lionel Shriver (We Need to talk about Kevin). However, she found her niche in poetry and flash fiction and has been published in various anthologies such as #MeToo (Fair Acre Press), Slow Things (The Emma Press) and magazines/websites such as The Interpreter’s House, Prole, The Poetry Shed and South Bank Poetry.

She writes lyrics with Alex Metcalfe and alongside him and Keith Lovegrove, formed Amusia Productions, for which she has script-edited (in French and English) a short theatre piece about the life and work of Erik Satie and co-written (and acted in) their latest production, Who Killed Cornelius Cardew?

Sarah also runs Paper Swans Press, publishing poetry and flash fiction.
