If you want to be a writer should you invest in a creative writing course? If so, which one?

Are writing groups a good thing?

What grants, awards and prizes are available to the aspiring writer?

How should you plan your career in the long-term?

The book also features an introduction from Fay Weldon, ‘Why I wish I’d read this book when I was 25’, and includes comments and case studies from other established authors, agents and industry experts.
