A novel is a relationship, a place outside of time where both reader and writer are challenged and validated, stretched and rewarded.

Richard Skinner believes it is your duty as a novelist to bring your whole self to the page; to find your story, not force it; to meet your reader in a spirit of openness.

In Writing a Novel he offers up frameworks, strategies and stimuli to help you meet that duty, drawingon his deep experience as one of the UK's leading creative writing teachers. He covers the essentials - narrators, character, setting - with charm and rigour. But Writing a Novel is not a set of instructions: it is a way of thinking, a conversation, a relationship in itself.

Review:

Inspiring . . . connects writers to themselves at the deepest level. Source: S. J. Watson

'If you're burning to write a novel, this guide will fan the flames and help you discover your true talent.' Source: Laline Paull

'Richard Skinner is an enlightened and liberating teacher. Writing a Novel is a must for all who want to write and for those who already are. My copy is always on my desk.' Source: Renee Knight

'Skinner has a singular gift for communicating the magic and machinations of writing. This clear and generous book will help any writer find their way to telling their stories.' Source: Lydia Ruffles

'Skinner's elegant prose is restrained and increasingly hypnotic.' (on The Mirror) Source: Financial Times

'There are tinges of the uncanny, strains of the gothic, to both stories. In each there are corridors and locked doors it would be best not to pry into. Skinner's prose has the strangely contradictory quality of being so clear and crystalline that you feel it must be hiding something. It's an effect that is, like the settings of both these highly unusual tales, creepingly claustrophobic.' (on The Velvet Gentleman) Source: Daily Telegraph

'[Skinner's] prose is poetic and beautiful... It approaches its subject with a spare and clear reality, as if through the cold sharp lens of the mirror that glitters at the story's heart. I really enjoyed this novel. It lingered in my mind for days.' (on The Mirror) Source: Essie Fox, author of The Goddess And The Thief, Elijah's Mermaid and The Somnambulist

'I just loved Oliva's voice and story, the whole world The Mirror manages to evoke. And then The Velvet Gentleman, in voice and style, was a complete volte face but, as I recovered from being jolted out of Oliva's world so shockingly and unexpectedly, an equally intriguing and compelling story.' (on The Mirror) Source: Lucy Caldwell, author of The Meeting Point and All the Beggars Riding

'Lovingly researched and beautifully imagined.' (on The Mirror) Author: Daily Mail

Book Description:

The essential companion for your writing life.
