Things To Do

Share your stories with our writer in Residence

Share your stories about Selby Market and Selby life with our writer in residence, Sarah Butler.

We’re delighted that author Sarah Butler has joined Selby Stories as our writer in residence.

Sarah has had three novels published by Picador in the UK and with fourteen international publishers. Her work explores ideas of home, belonging, identity, family, and urban landscapes.

Sarah will have her own stall on Selby Market where she will be gathering stories about Selby Market and market life and will also be running a number of writing workshops. She will also be sharing the stories she gathers on her blog and other ways – keep an eye out for more information over coming months.

If you can’t make it along to her market stall, stories can also be submitted direct to Sarah via her blog at

You will find details of all the market stall and workshop dates here.

The project is part of Selby Stories – an exciting programme of arts and cultural events running until late 2023, celebrating what makes Selby special and unique.
