    We meet Singer/songwriter SuRie. Her new EP “Rye” was released in May during lockdown and she says this enabled her some moments of distraction and focus but brought some very unusual challenges as well. SuRie represented the United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2018 in Lisbon, with her song "Storm".

    WMW Patrice Lawrence

    Patrice Lawrence feels there is still a world where writers of colour are still under-represented. Patrice writes stories that reflect all families, families who do not have a voice or face in the world of books. Initially Patrice’s debut book Orange Boy faced resistance from publishers in their reluctance to present this new and different story. It was later shortlisted for the Costa Children’s Book Award and won the bookseller YA Prize and Waterstone’s Prize for Older Children’s Fiction. Patrice Lawrence speaks to Suzie Thorpe.
