Got to know Wendy a little through Twitter and various poetry networks. She writes about finding her way as a working-class writer, coming to terms with paths not travelled, nature and belonging. Her first book, The Ghost Lake, is out soon.
Susannah's journey from bereavement to healing is well worth following, and having checked out her book I've been impressed by her openness, directness, and wisdom. She takes great Polaroids, too.
Two words - Katherine Birbalsingh. Yes, I hear the collective liberal intake of breath. But what a brilliant, nuanced piece of reportage. The choice of illustrative incidents alone should earn it a place in the NF creative writing classes of the future.
