Imagine being a suffragette? Then write your feelings and win a national writing competition! Take a look at this Emily Inspires competition:
Just one of the exciting events in the 2013 centenary celebrations of suffragette heroine, Emily Wilding Davison.
My own novel, No Greater Love, was inspired by Northumbrian Davison, and follows the turbulent life of Tynesider, Maggie Beaton in her fight for the vote and personal freedom. http://amzn.to/ZmIOb8
It was recently launched at Rutherford’s department store in Morpeth – the town where Emily’s family used to live – on International Women’s Day.
Husband Graeme got into role as the grumpy man in the bowler hat who argues with Maggie over a suffragette newspaper – but she gets the last laugh!
So go on – have a go at the competition – and good luck!
