Meriel Schindler is the author of The Lost Café Schindler- one family two wars and the search for truth, described by Philippe Sands, author of East West Street as ‘An extraordinary and compelling book of reckonings – a journey across a long, complex and deeply painful arc of history, grippingly told – a wonderful melding of the personal and the political, the family and the historical.’

Meriel spent the first fifteen years of her life growing up in central London before suddenly being moved to a convent school in provincial Austria. Five years later she moved back to the UK to study French and German at university and is now an employment lawyer, partner and head of a team at Withers, a law firm. Meriel was a trustee of Arvon for 8 years, and is married to husband Jeremy with three grown-up children.


Now more than ever we need stories – to engage, to entertain, to nourish, and to help us make sense of what we’re living through. So join us from the comfort of your sofa and listen to writers share their work, the stories behind their work, and invaluable writing advice directly from their own desk (or maybe the kitchen table).

This session will be delivered via Zoom webinar, so you can take the session at your own pace, without the pressure of having your video or camera on. Sessions are also recorded so if you are unable to attend live, you will have access to the recording for a month afterwards.

I feel much more confident about short stories now! In such a short time I feel I was given such a great overview and the reader/tutor was so generous with their feedback and knowledge.

Very lovely. It had an intimate feeling despite it being a Zoom event and all of us being in different places.
