I met writer Monica Suswin at the Critical Voices conference in June this year. We were both keynote speakers discussing how our practice intertwines with our mental health experiences. Monica is an astonishing author who writes with honesty and intensity. Monica also runs Cabin on the Hill, a studio retreat for writers in Sussex, as well as one-to-one writing sessions and workshops.
Monica recently commissioned me for her new author book jacket photo and headshot. We spent time talking about life and our experiences and this shot really represents to me Monica’s honesty and openness.
