Most people aren’t aware that Charles Dickens didn’t only write novels: he began his career as a freelance journalist and continued to be a campaigning and investigative journalist until the day he died. When he tired of being edited by other people, he set up his own magazines, which he edited, wrote for, and commissioned other great writers to work on. In this talk, author Lucinda Dickens Hawksley will reveal a fascinating insight into this little-known world of her great great great grandfather.
