Writing the Dream
24 Authors One Dream 24 Inspiring Stories
A Serenity Press Anthology
A collection of 25 stories written by talented authors. 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-five 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 of other talented writers, the stories in Writing the Dream are set to strike an inspirational chord in every hopeful writer’s heart.
Australian authors share their personal stories of process, inspiration, writing experiences and publishing in a very personal and honest collection of short stories. So many of the names here are familiar to me; some are authors I have already had the pleasure of reading their work, or I may have seen them talk at a festival or “know” via social media, regardless of how I have “met” this diverse group of writers, it felt like these authors were reaching out and speaking directly to me – such an intimate and inspirational approach; I highly value the advice given so generously here.
If you aspire to write, or dabble, or dream or perhaps know someone who does then this little book will brighten their day and get the words flowing on the pages.
As a bonus you get an extra chapter free, twenty five individual stories and each author provides a set of tips at the end of their chapter. One of the best hints/tips I think is from Melinda Tognini:
“Just start.” (p.233, emphasis added)
I love this personal approach to sharing writing wisdom, Carol! It’s really welcoming as well as helpful. I like it very, very much. I can see why it appeals toyou.
I felt like I was sitting with each author, chatting, sharing experiences- inspiring!
Thanks for this lovely review, Carol! 🙂
Thanks for sharing your story Louise
What a great sounding book. How great that such authors would collaborate this way to bring about this work. And yes, I agree with the final sentiment. There’s nothing else for it. 🙂
Thanks Rebecca- we have such talented, generous and supportive authors here in Australia don’t you think?
