BLOG BREAK Hope and Inspiration

Nick Cross presents his selection of must-read SCBWI-BI member blogs.

We're a few days late for International Women's Day, but it's always worth celebrating, as Catherine Friess discovers through her review of books to inspire future generations

With war raging in Europe, the world has suddenly become a much more frightening and uncertain place. Vanessa Harbour discusses how recent world events have affected her writing, and how stories can help to engender hope in tough times.


On a more domestic level, Catherine Rosevear is dealing with a seriously judgey dog. But what might one grumpy canine's behaviour teach her about writing competitions?


Kathryn Kettle has sometimes felt all at sea over the past year, but she's marshalling her thoughts for a blog post about the amazing and tough things she's learnt from being a debut novelist

Finally, Clare Helen Welsh's in-person visit posts are always so much fun. Feast your eyes on a plethora of craft projects produced during visits to Newton Abbot and Torquay Libraries.

No comments:

We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
