How to be a writer
Welcome to Literature Wales' new online resource for creative writers. Designed specifically with the writer in Wales in mind, it’s intended as a practical, accessible and supportive guide to help you improve your writing and navigate the business.
Whether you’re starting out as a writer or looking to go further, you’ll find a wealth of invaluable information and advice on everything from creative writing workshops to degrees, from submitting work to magazines to making the best approach to publishers and agents, from self-promotion to social networking, from Literature Wales' services for writers to literary prizes, awards and competitions.
You’ll also be able to learn more about the state of Welsh writing in English today, about how magazine and book publishing in Wales works, and what the life of a professional creative writer is really like. Included throughout are links to magazines, publishers, organisations and sites of interest to creative writers, and we encourage readers to explore further.
