Inquest into a Campaign
Inquest into a Campaign is a creative non-fiction critique of the international press regulation campaign waged in the week between the death and the funeral of Lucy Meadows. She was a school teacher in Accrington (England) who ended her own life on 19th March 2013, four months after being subjected to press harassment. That press interest arose after her school announced that she would no longer teach as a man. Her death occurred just as the British parliament was debating the press regulation aspects of the Leveson Report. This book examines the motivations of the various aspects of the campaign with a focus on social media based campaigning and the connections to the parliamentary debate. The story is told in the form of a fictional inquest into the campaign conducted by The Coroner. The book contains timelines and online resources at the end of each chapter as well as at the end of the book.
