I edited this book and my essay “Reading: The Best Training Ground” appears in here.
No two writers are the same, but they have one thing in common: they are storytellers at heart and their deepest desire is to be heard.
Writing the Dream shares the stories of twenty-four Australian writers, from emerging to established authors. Some are traditionally published, while others have taken the self-publishing route. Some have faced rejection after rejection, while others have had a dream path. But, while their writing journeys are different, all of them strive to create, entertain, inspire and inform. And all of them have unique and creative voices that deserve to be heard.
With contributors including Anna Jacobs, Juliet Marillier, Natasha Lester, Jenn J McLeod, and a host other talented writers, the stories in Writing the Dream are set to strike an inspirational chord in every hopeful writer’s heart. Edited by Monique Mulligan and published by Serenity Press.
Writing the Dream is destined to find its way onto the desktops of a broad range of writers, and likely to be added to the resource lists for teachers of amateur and professional writing courses. Although its contributors are based in Australia, the information contained in its pages has relevance and significance for writers worldwide. MAUREEN EPPEN, GOODREADS
This is the kind of book which will be kept on shelves in offices to inspire and cheer up many a disheartened writer again and again. EMILY PAULL
