Every writer’s career is different. While there is no one proven route to success, there is a lot of value in shared learning and demystifying what can often feel like a very opaque industry. In these resources, we’ve asked writers to share their own learning, as well as drawing on the knowledge and experience of New Writing North staff and industry professionals. Some highlights include:
- Anthony Anaxagorou on when writers sit to formulate ideas
- Melissa Wan on submitting your work to literary magazines and websites
- Andrew Hankinson on writing non-fiction
- Emma Hill on self-publishing your book
- Vidyan Ravinthiran on being a poet
