Personal Journalism: WIJ Sally Brampton tribute
When: Tuesday October 11, 2016
Time: 6.30 – 9.30
Ticket price (to include drinks): £20
Sally Brampton, who died early this year, won huge respect among the many WIJ members who were her former colleagues and friends. WIJ is holding an event in her memory on the theme of ‘personal journalism’ – how much is the right amount to give away, how do you judge that, say no to too much and also put yourself and your experiences out there to help others – all subjects very close to Sally’s life and career.
The panel will be chaired by former Independent on Sunday editor and WIJ committee member Lisa Markwell, and includes
* Louise Chunn, former editor of Psychologies magazine, and founder of welldoing.org, the therapists directory and self-development, mental health and wellbeing website
* Bryony Gordon, author of Mad Girl and Telegraph columnist
* Rebecca Armstrong, features editor of the ‘i’ paper and columnist
The ticket price (£20) will include networking drinks and a donation to Mind, the mental health charity
