Tips and Advice for Writers: Escape into Your Story

We’re proud to share an edited video of the best bits from our writing judging panel during the Undiscovered Voices 2016 competition launch on May 14th 2015.

The writing judges talk about the getting straight into a story and leaving exposition to be delivered as the story progresses. There’s plenty of insight into what the judges are looking for and what sort of pitfalls you might come across when you think you’re ready to submit. Keep an eye out for Jon Appleton sage advice on narrative confidence, in other words making sure you can convince the reader you’ve chosen the best story and that you’re the person to deliver it.

We’d like to thank Mike Perks for recording and editing this video and thanks Foyles for hosting the event!
