In the run-up weekend to our 2018 festival Marnie hosted a very well attended day of memoir-writing events, beginning with a moving, eloquent discussion in which she talked to author Sarah Pullen about her memoir A Mighty Boy. As an interviewer Marnie is a true professional, asking thought-provoking yet sensitive and heartfelt questions, and putting everyone at ease in that lovely, warm way of hers. This was followed by a memoir-writing workshop in which delegates, quite frankly, didn’t want to leave! A big thank you to Marnie for a memorable day and her really lovely contribution to the overall success of the festival.
