Publisher's Description

Make those writing dreams a reality with this comprehensive guide that explains how to go from staring at an empty page to becoming a published author.

Designed to inspire creative expression and help aspiring young writers achieve their dreams, So, You Want to Be a Writer? takes readers through the fulfilling step-by-step process of becoming a professional writer, from learning how to generate ideas to getting published and promoting their work.
     Aspiring writers will learn how to tackle writer’s block, improve technique, approach publishers, and more. A detailed list of magazines, websites, contests, and book publishers looking for young authors will keep readers’ eyes on the prize, while exclusive interviews with bestselling authors and young published writers will keep them engaged and inspired.
     So, You Want to Be a Writer? includes exclusive insights from well-known authors, such as the late Jurassic Park author Michael Crichton and fantasy author Amanda Hocking, who self-published her first novels to huge buzz. And profiles on young writers who are out there working right now—from a Vanity Fair blogger to a lyricist—give a real-time perspective to the dream profession.
