Taking young writers on a journey to discover themselves and what they really want to say, this guide explains how to make it juicy and original, answering questions such as What do you need to begin? Where can you find ideas? How can you make your writing better? and What can you do if you get stuck? This guide will bring out the best in all young writers, with suggestions from the practical—buy a new journal, dust off your diary, find a favorite pen—to the poetic—write hard and fast into the wild land of your imagination.

About the Author:

Brigid Lowry is the author of Follow the Blue, Guitar Highway Rose, and Things You Either Hate or Love.

From Booklist:

The New Zealand writer offers beginners a sometimes nontraditional introduction to writing. Promising “inspiration and techniques,” she devotes the larger part of her attention to the former, not getting around to “Writing Essentials” —character, plot, form, setting, and such—until part four of her five-part book. The first three chapters are devoted to such matters as the seeds of inspiration, creative spaces, getting to know yourself (“If you were an object of clothing what would you be?”), and developing your senses. Some of this actually seems helpful in freeing young writers from preconceived notions and anxiety-induced stiffness. Some of it, however, seems designed only to test the reader’s patience. To be fair, Lowry does offer some spot-on observations about the field today, plus practical advice that confirms her familiarity with her subject and helpful quotations from other writers (that confirm theirs). Alas, however, she never does explain what she means by “juicy writing.” Grades 7-12. --Michael Cart
