The new People's Friend fiction editor has been announced.

Lucy Crichton has been appointed as the new fiction editor at The People's Friend. (More details here.) 

I know we're all going to miss Shirley, but I've no doubt Lucy will do a great job. I met her briefly last year and just like the rest of the team, she's very nice.

Congratulations, Lucy.

I've worked with Lucy since she took up her place in the Fiction Department two years ago, and she has been an utter joy throughout. Lucy is incredibly encouraging, kind and patient and I just know that the womagwriting community will take her to their hearts. I feel incredibly lucky to have begun my womagwriting adventure during Shirley's tenure, and, like many others, I will miss her, but I firmly believe further happy times lie ahead, with Lucy at the fiction helm of The People's Friend.
