Author Caroline Lawrence offered some excellent advice and writing tips when she was interviewed by students last week for the relaunched Worth Literary Society.
Caroline Lawrence is an English American author, best known for The Roman Mysteries, a series of historical novels for children. She has written more than 35 books.
She agreed to be interviewed online by two members of the Literary Society who asked her a series of questions including which authors had influenced her the most, what is the most difficult part of the artistic process, what tricks she uses to overcome writer’s block and what advice she has for any students thinking of a career in literature. Particularly interesting was how she spoke about structuring a novel and developing characters.
The Literary Society was relaunched this term to promote writing and reading among students. It is hoped that other writers and journalists will be able to speak with students during the academic year, initially online but eventually in person.
The Literary Society is just one of many co-curricular activities students can get involved in at Worth. For more on Co-Curricular at Worth click here.
