Glasgow Group: The Passion Project

14 December @ 18:30 - 20:00 GMT

Virtual Event Virtual Event

Join the Glasgow Group on Wednesday 14 December from 6:30pm for their next online meet-up. This month we will be joined by non-fiction writer and novelist David Manderson as he identifies one variety of the form which maximises your chances of selling your book: The Passion Project.

Passionate non-fiction not only creates a successful book, it lets you have some (research) fun during the writing. If you’re passionate about your subject, it’s likely that the reader will be too. This session is based on the writing of David’s new book, The Anti-hero’s Journey: the Work and Life of Alan Sharp, which is the result of three years research and is due for publication in early 2023.

David Manderson has written and published some fiction and some non-fiction. Lost Bodies (Kennedy and Boyd, 2011) was a dark psychological thriller. Some of his short fiction has appeared in magazines and anthologies in Scotland and New York. He has also published academic non-fiction which he hopes is readable, such as two Scotnotes – (like Yorknotes but Scottish) – on the films Rob Roy (2009) and Local Hero (2010) from The Association for Scottish Literary Studies. He won a Robert Louis Stevenson fellowship in 2017. His new book about the novelist and screenwriter Alan Sharp is due out from Zurich-based Peter Lang publishers soon.

This event will be hosted by Society of Authors in Scotland committee member Tita Berredo.
