SGSD Writer in Residence lands Publishing Deal

Wednesday 31 May 2017

Congratulations to Esther Rutter, the School’s Honorary Writer in Residence and our School magazine editor, who has recently landed a debut publishing deal with Granta.

Esther, who gave up her day job in January 2017, won a book deal thanks to XpoNorth’s Tweet Your Pitch competition for her idea This Golden Fleece, which Esther describes as “the UK’s long love affair with wool” and which explores locally produced wool and historic knitting patterns from around the British Isles. We look forward to seeing the book published by Granta Books in the Autumn 2019.
