My writing

My belief in the power of the media as a positive force for change in nursing led me to write a student column for Nursing Mirror and then into full-time journalism, another of my career strands. I’ve edited Senior Nurse, Nursing Times and NMC Review and written numerous articles for the general and health press in the UK and overseas.
 
I’m also a widely published author.  Mostly I write about healthcare, but to ring the changes, I recently wrote a book called Skyros: island of dreams, about my experiences and others' stories, from a wonderful holistic holiday centre on the idyllic Greek island of Skyros. Here are some unsolicited comments on the book:  
 
‘Jane Salvage has gathered together a stunning history of the Skyros phenomenon. A must-read for anyone involved in personal development’ – Malcolm Stern, TV presenter, psychotherapist and author
 
‘Your love of the island comes shining out of every page. Makes me want to climb on a plane, howl at the moon and dance naked with the goat herders. Congratulations on your achievement’ – Tom, psychotherapist
 
I love running writing workshops, where I share my expertise to help people build their confidence and get into print. I've recently run writing masterclasses for Queen's Nurses, as part of my former role as a trustee of the Queen's Nursing Institute. And in 2013-2016 I held an innovative post as the first Writer in Residence at the School of Nursing, Kingston University and St George's, University of London.
