Our friend Lisa

We’re sad to say our colleague Lisa Plumbridge died early in the New Year.

She was a project manager at The Writer in London, though she’d been off work with cancer for most of the last three years. She spent her last few days surrounded by a small army of family and friends.

A big gang of Writer people, past and present, went to her funeral earlier this week, and it was great to hear her closest friends describe her in exactly the same way that we would here: very funny; determined to the point of stubborn; really brave. And pouting in every picture, like the one above, where’s she’s holding her favourite word.

Our hearts go out to everyone who was close to her. And of course, we’ll miss her loads as both a colleague and a friend of ours. She was brilliant to have around; we’re just sorry it wasn’t for longer.
