Advice For Writers
I run writing and storytelling courses for all ages and abilities. You can find out more here.
Lots of people tell me they’d love to write but don’t know where to start, or are worried about doing it ‘right.’
Here are my main tips:
• Have fun. David Almond says, ‘Writing is play.’
• Put down what’s in your head. Don’t worry about whether it’s right or wrong.
• Each time you finish a draft, read your story or poem aloud. Change anything that doesn’t quite sound right or that muddles your tongue.
• Love your writing. Even if you never show it to anyone, remember, it’s your treasure.
