Hazel Edwards
“Creativity is the fun of putting
together unexpected ideas”

"As a writer, you live more intensively, using participant-observation. You do things, using all senses, knowing you will write about them afterwards."

Hazel's three hints to aspiring writers are: "Write regularly. Persist. And always consider your reader - who are you writing for?"

     

Check the following articles and videos for strategies on how to craft your ideas and words.
