I've pulled together a number of different ideas for that writer in your life.

This gift guide is full of entertaining and practical gifts for writer's from all walks of life.

These gifts have been specially hand picked to show your special writer just how much they mean to you.

A moving journey and tapestry of life through the eyes of some of the greatest writer's including Jane Austen, Sylvia Plath, Virginia Woolf, William Shakespeare.  A gentle reminder that the patterns of life transcend continents, cultures and generations.

2. Writing for a Living: The Query

This course from Udemy will be your companion to sell your writing - and what writer doesn't want that?

A highly rated course, Writing for a Living details how to create Queries, from author Stefan Petrucha based on two decades of experience in graphic novels and novels.  Presented in three sections:

Query Basics summarises how the Query is developed, then is broken down into five sections: Content, Market, Bio,
  • Availability and Project Status.
  • Story Basics goes into greater detail about how the author pitches the core of their work in a concise and captivating manner.
  • Creating Summaries investigates how summaries developed in different media (film, tv, publishing) and how that framework effects the working writer.
