The sinking of RMS Tayleur

I’m really touched by this review of “The Sinking of RMS Tayleur”, and pleased that the people on board this doomed ship are being acknowledged once more after being forgotten for so many decades.

Gill Hoffs Author Talk: The Sinking of RMS Tayleur

 

Join Gill Hoffs for this evening’s talk on RMS Tayleur, how this book came about and how Gill, inspired by a visit to Culture Warrington’s Museum & Art Gallery, researched this. Gill will also share insights on the practicalities of writing nonfiction including structuring the book, research, overcoming difficulties and deadends, approaching publishers and agents, editing, sourcing illustrations, and promoting the finished product and finish with a Q&A.

Bio: Gill Hoffs was raised on the Scottish coast but has considered Warrington home for the past ten years.  Her nonfiction book “The Sinking of RMS Tayleur: The Lost Story of the ‘Victorian Titanic’” (Pen & Sword, 2014) was written after a conversation with a curator about the Tayleur artefacts in Culture Warrington’s Museum & Art Gallery, and her short fiction and nonfiction pieces are widely available online and in print.  Please see https://gillhoffs.wordpress.com for further details, find her on twitter as @GillHoffs, or email gillhoffs@hotmail.co.uk
