Fascinating and informative – advice to inspire budding writers as well as entertaining Maeve Binchy fans the world over.
‘The most important thing to realise is that everyone is capable of telling a story. It doesn’t matter where we were born or how we grew up’ Maeve Binchy
The Maeve Binch Writers’ Club gives a unique insight into how a No. 1 bestselling author writes. Inspired by a course run by the National College of Ireland, it comprises twenty letters from Maeve offering advice, tips and her own wonderfully witty take on the life of a writer, in addition to contributions from top writers, publishers and editors.
Contributors include Marian Keyes, Alison Walsh, Norah Casey, Paula Campbell, Ivy Bannister, Gerald Dawe, Jim Culleton, Ferdia McAnna and Julie Parsons.
Whether you want to write a saga or a thriller, comedy or journalism, or write for the radio or stage, the book also gives advice on the best way to get started, and what editors, publishers and agents are looking for.
