Teen Writers' Magazine

I can't thank movellas enough for the opportunities and inspiration I've had since joining the site! In 2014 I managed to win a place in an amazing writing Masterclass (and private interview) with the bestselling author of the 'Uglies' series- Scott Westerfeld- when he came to London on a 2-day tour... a massive, massive thank you to movellas for that truly inspirational experience <3 We asked him as many of your questions as we could, so now I'm excited to reveal all the advice we managed to squeeze from what was genuinely one of the most exciting days of my life. This magazine also contains a bunch of other things to do with writing, reading and movellas. Ever wanted access to all of Movellas an secrets, top tips and guidance in one place? I hope this helps :D *I'd also like to give a big thanks to my wonderfully supportive and friendly movellians that have helped with this: HeartTaunter, Raven711, Writer_Girl, Jade.P and so many more! :)

21. Advice To Young Authors

Uniqua Niques: What advice would you give to people who would like to be published? Or what motivates you personally as an author?

Scott's answer: One thing is that stories are really important. Some of the oldest things we have are stories. There are stories that live for thousands of years and are used in all different kinds of ways. There are civilisations that have completely died out, except for their stories. These things are important and it’s part of being human; the ability to make sense of the world and to construct a story out of all the random stuff that happens. And I think that’s an important part of civilisation, part of being human.
