For the past decade, the Freedom Writers Diary has been at the heart of the British thriller writers collective.
In 2017, the diary won the title of UK’s top novel and the best novel for young adult fiction.
Now, its latest story, “The Last Dance”, is coming to a close with a bang.
“The Last Dancer” follows the story of a group of writers as they try to put their work together after the death of their father.
The story, written by the acclaimed writers Sarah Raine and Rebecca Williams, was nominated for the prestigious Booker Prize and has been adapted for film and TV by BBC Three and Netflix.
The novel tells the story in a world where all writers have their own personal style and are fiercely independent, often in the face of fierce criticism and public scorn.
It’s also one of the best novels in recent years.
“We were lucky that we got to work with a number of people, especially in the UK, who really gave us their time and their expertise, and who were willing to take the risks and write a story they felt passionate about,” Williams said.
“They’re very supportive of us and really helped us to be able to make a story that was both personal and also about freedom and equality.
It was a very collaborative project.”
“In a way, I was like an assistant in the film and television industry,” said Raine.
“It was my job to take all the stories we could and get them into the script, but also to have a voice in them, to help write them.
