About the Author:

Heather Wright loves writing for children and teens. Her favourite books to read are mysteries, so she had a lot of fun writing Sherlock Holmes and the Orphanage Mystery for Caramel Tree (Canada). She loves history, too, and has enjoyed writing many short stories for Kayak: Canada's History Magazine for Kids. Recently she received her second Ontario Arts Council Writers' Reserve grant for an anthology for young readers that she is co-writing. Heather's website, wrightingwords.com, is a great resource for teen and pre-teen writers and their teachers. An experienced teacher and presenter, Heather visits schools and writing groups to talk about the craft and career of writing, and for several years has run writing workshops for teens at her local library. Heather is also a freelance writer who writes for business and non-profits. Her work has been published on the Web and by local, Canadian, and US publications. Her professional website is wrightwriter.com.

Review:

Canadian Teacher Magazine April/May 2015.... Heather Wright has a love for writing for children and teenagers and she has written a new resource to help pre-teens to be successful writers .... Multiple strategies are listed [and] the resource is also filled with writing prompts and tips on how to start and end a story. ... Writing can be a daunting task, and teaching children and teenagers to write can be even more intimidating. Writing Fiction offers ample opportunity for instructional use within the classroom, covering a wide range of Language expectations ....

Canadian Materials Magazine Oct. 2014Writing Fiction: A Guide for Pre-Teens follows in the footsteps of Writing Fiction: A Hands-On Guide for Teens .... Longer than the first resource guide--this one comes in at 66 pages, covering primarily the same ground from goal setting and tapping ideas to character-building and writers' block. Wright's explanations are clear, concise, and illuminating, without talking down to the user. The guide would be a useful resource even for adults. Copyright © the Manitoba Library Association
