Awesome Book Awards 2019 Shortlist
Winner – Being Miss Nobody by Tamsin Winter
Reading is the best thing you can do for your brain but also your heart. It increases your empathy and caring and getting young people reading will really make a difference to their lives…I wanted to write a story that included all the pressures that children are growing up with. Social media can be a way to create and connect but also can bring real pressure and difficulty.
Awesome Book Awards 2018 Shortlist
Winner – Cogheart by Peter Bunzl
Read as much as you can, and write as much as you can – anything and everything. Poetry, novels, short stories, non-fiction – whatever interests you.
Read it all and write it all, and don’t fear failure – you learn by trial and error until you’ve found your voice and the story you want to tell.
