MasterClass: Holly Black Covers All The Bases

HB

I’m doing a MasterClass Tuesday this week since an unexpected five hour drive through a blizzard derailed me yesterday. This week, we’re going to reap the wisdom of Holly Black, author of The Spiderwick Chronicles, Tithe, Valiant and Ironside.

Holly has one of the most comprehensive lists of writing tips I have ever seen, covering everything from inspiration, to process, to titling, to pitching, and post-publishing, including links to other resources. Spend some time on this one – she’s really made it worth your while!

As a debut author (in the YA genre), I especially found her section on conferences helpful – I’m trying to figure out which I’d like to target and she’s helped me narrow that list down considerably.

Holly is known for her imaginative world-building and heartfelt characters. I love to peek inside a writer’s brain and get the backstory, and Holly Black does not disappoint!
