Introducing Prepublished, Series 1 - with Sophia Bennett
Children's and crime writer Sophia Bennett explains her long journey to publication, and why she wanted to make this podcast. She introduces some of the guests, who'll be talking about their experiences and sharing their favourite tips for making you and your writing stand out.
This series focuses on the world of children’s books, but almost all the ideas we discuss apply to writing fiction generally. So whatever you’re working on, settle in to listen to some serious talk about writing.
Before she started writing crime as SJ Bennett, Sophia was the author of ten books for teens, including 'Threads', which won the Times/Chicken House Fiction Competition in 2009, and 'Love Song', which won the RoNA Romantic Novel of the Year in 2017. She’s a visiting lecturer in Writing for Children, a Patron of Reading, and a Consultant Fellow of the Royal Literary Fund. Her latest book, written for Tate Publishing, is 'The Bigger Picture: Women Who Changed the Art World'.
