Dr Sarah Walton is a novelist and creative writing teacher. She has a PhD in Creative Writing from the University of Hull in the UK, where she taught creative writing to undergraduates.
Her teaching methods include meditation techniques which unleash the imagination with speed. Sarah developed an approach to writing from the intuition that combines meditation, free-writing techniques, stream of consciousness and traditional creative writing skills for beginners, singer songwriters, as well as professional writers of all kinds experiencing ‘writers’ block.’
Sarah also holds a Masters Degree in Digital Media from London University of the Arts and advises governments and corporate organisations on digital strategy, corporate storytelling to develop powerful brand stories, and digital missions that put the user at the heart of their organisation’s story.
Sarah taught herself to meditate at the age of 15 years to overcome asthma attacks and manage trauma. Since then she has trained for over 25 years with a number of gurus/lamas/ teachers as well as conducting her own research into ancient Gnostic meditation – the result of which was her most recent novel, Rufius. Rufius was long-listed for the Polari First Book Award 2017.
Sarah believes that everyone has a story within them, a story their soul yearns to tell. She sees her job as facilitating writers to access their soul story and write the story that wants to be written.
