Five Warwick alumni, all with varying literature-based backgrounds, share their advice on how best to approach writing a book and overcoming the many hurdles that may be faced. How does it feel to have your first book published? What obstacles do aspiring writers face? Chaired by Birmingham-born writer Leila Rasheed (who now tutors on the Warwick Writing Programme), it comprised alumni with a wealth of experience, not only in the craft of writing, but on topics such as how to get published, editing childrens’ literature, and promoting yourself and your books. Joining Leila were guests Helen Thomas, Justin Somper, Sally Nicholls and Mal Peet.
