This month we celebrated National Authors Day, which recognises the work of Authors and Writers.
Have you ever curled up with your favourite Harry Potter book and thought ‘I would love to write a book?’, well if so, a career as a Writer might be for you.
First things first, let’s look at the different types of Writers. We may not all be the next Stephen King, but there are plenty of other forms of writing, from newspaper articles to poetry to script writing.
Writers are creative, organised, disciplined, and have excellent research skills. They can be involved in the creation and development of works of fiction and non-fiction.
What is the difference between fiction and non-fiction?
Fiction is not based on facts (Harry Potter, Roald Dahl). Writing a piece of fiction will require you to use your own imagination to bring a story to life!
Non-fiction writing is based on facts, so things like autobiographies. They usually require more research to make sure the facts are correct.
