Weardale Wordfest 2019: Discussion with local writers Marie Gardiner, Amy Lord and Pauline Messenger
Three different writers who have written three very different books! Marie is an author, photographer and documentary film-maker whose first book, Sunderland Industrial Giant, was published in 2017. Amy is a writer, blogger and digital marketer. Her debut , The Disappeared, is an award-winning dystopian novel about a young woman who uses banned books to fight back against an authoritarian regime, after the arrest of her father. Pauline’s book, Only Dead Fish go with the Flow, is a very personal account of her journey through change, challenges, divorce, bereavement and much more. Hear them talk about what inspired them to venture into print.
