Juicy Writing Inspiration and Techniques for Young Writers by Brigid Lowry


Juicy Writing Inspiration and Techniques for Young Writers by Brigid Lowry

Being a writer has it's highs and lows, from being paid to make up stuff and work in your pyjamas, to the loneliness of sitting by yourself in your study for hours. However, despite the lows, Brigid Lowry still thinks it's a joy and gives practical advice on creative writing, especially for teenagers. More than just a 'how to' book for young writers, Juicy Writing speaks directly to young people and inspires them to have courage, be themselves and explore their creativity. It's a book to relish, to dip into, to read on the train, to lend to a friend. It will bring out the best in you.


As useful to teachers thinking of ways to inspire young pupils as to the young people themselves. A generous and eclectic mix of stimuli, loosely collected into topics, alongside technical know-how useful to all aspiring writers, I found this fascinating to dip into and something I would definitely use in my English teaching.
