Writers by Nikki Gamble, Katie Dicker

A series of questions are presented to famous authors, such as Michael Rosen, Ted Hughes and Valerie Bloom, to ask them how they write, where their inspiration comes from, what techniques they use and how they solve common writing problems. The process is explored from original ideas and what tools to write with through to promoting the finished book. It looks at plot, characters, settings, story and poetry types, beginnings and endings as well as what to do when it all goes wrong!


This book is a treasure store of helpful information about writers and writing. -- School Librarian 20090701
