500 words writing competition

Professional Advice- EoinColferAuthor of the Artemis Fowl series

"In a story even the boring stuff, like walking across a room, has to be interesting to read. On some level your story must be real so have some truth at the centre, whether it's in the characters, plot or setting. Never ever end your story with 'and it was all a dream'. All that means is you couldn't tie up the plot."

Professional Advice- Bali RaiAuthor of Fire City

"Stuck for an idea? Read a book, watch a film, listen to some music, whatever gets your imagination flowing. Need characters? Use the people around you. Draw inspiration from the world you see and then add the extra layers you need to make the story your own. Oh and have FUN!"


500 words writing competition

Professional Advice- Francesca Simon, Author of Horrid Henry

"My ideas come from everywhere - newspapers, things people say, films I've seen, dreams - you just need to work on listening out for them and writing them down in your ideas notebook which you should ALWAYS have with you. But remember: your stories will be more fun if you give them a twist and combine 2 or more genres. So, if you want to write about football, what about an alien football match, or a pets' football match? If you want to write about a school, how about a school for ghosts? Or animal detectives?"
