Review:

Praise for the first edition:

"The idea of life as a story, and the story being a journey explains the title The Road to Somewhere. As a writer you need to keep progressing and improving, and the four people who have co-edited the book together aim to help you along that journey...If you are starting out and are feeling a little lost and lonely, here is an excellent companion." - Richard Bell, Writing Magazine

"This comprehensive, intelligent guide approaches writing on all levels, from basics like punctuation to the trickier parts like plotting and structure. As well as nuts and bolts advice, it includes chapters on journal writing,creativity and dreams. With dozens of writing books around, this one stands out for its greater range and depth, and its eminently readable style.' - Sarah Tierney, City Life

Book Description:

An essential new edition of an established introductory guide which provides key information on the skills, attitudes and knowledge needed for actual creative writing practice
