Author Jill Dawson and front cover of her novel 'The Bewitching' with the words 'In conversation with Jill Dawson' in the middle

Acclaimed historical novelist, creative writing tutor and mentor, Jill Dawson will be talking to ICE's Academic Director of Creative Writing, Dr Midge Gillies about her keenly-anticipated novel The Bewitching. The novel, which was Book of the Month in The Bookseller, tells the 16th century true story of a nine-year-old girl who casually accuses a neighbour of being a witch and sets in motion a shocking train of events. It has been described as “a vivid recreation of 16th-century life in The Fens and a powerfully moving tale about cruelty, persecution and power”.
