Juicy Writing is a treasure-trove of inspiration and practical advice on creative writing - and on living a confident, creative life - especially for teenagers. 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.

Why being a writer is good: You get paid to make stuff up, you get to travel because it's research, you can stay home and work in your pyjamas.

Why being a writer is bad: Sitting by yourself in your study for hours is lonely.

Brigid Lowry knows the highs and lows of being a writer, but she still thinks it's a joy. In this book she takes you on a journey to discover yourself and what you really want to say, AND how to make it juicy and original. So, what do you need to begin? Where can you find ideas? How can you make your writing better? What can you do if you get stuck?

Let Brigid inspire you to doodle, daydream and discover your creativity - then write hard and fast into the wild land of your imagination. If you ever thought you'd like to write, start reading Juicy Writing!
