This week’s RLF Consultant Fellows’ What’s happening? blog comes from Marina Benjamin. Whatever you are writing a novel, a thesis or a non-fiction book, you need to find your voice as an author. To do this, you bring your own subjectivity to your work: the filters that colour everything you think, see, remember and value – and a vital sense of curiosity. This is your investment.
This rings true with me. As a children’s non-fiction writer, it’s important to give different viewpoints on any issue but it is your voice that directs the narrative.
