Charlotte Wetton – I Refuse to Turn into a Hatstand
I love Charlotte’s voice; such clarity. Magnolia Crescent is my favourite.
Simon Armitage – The Unaccompanied
Duty manager with a face like Doncaster – I like the humour and craft.
Liz Berry – The Republic of Motherhood
As a mother myself, I enjoyed this take on being a mother.
Jasmine Gray – Let’s Photograph Girls Enjoying life
Fearless writing; powerful and enjoyable.
Michael Stewart – Couples
A very clever presentation of the lives we live as couples. Funny, sad and surprising.
