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! :)


2. Save Your Stories!

Okay, I know this might seem obvious, but I would strongly advise that you have a spare copy of your movella, rather than just having your one copy on here. Personally, I think it's handy if you type it up on a Word Document first, then copy and paste it onto here. A few reasons why I find this useful:

1. If your movella gets lost or you can't find it on this website. Bang. That's it. All your hard work would have essentially been flushed down a drain. One of my favourite writers on Movellas recently mumbled that she lost her movella and could no longer find it on her profile. Although this must’ve been REALLY annoying, she had some of her work saved onto a word document first so all was not lost, and she didn’t have to start from scratch.

2.There are better tools such as a spell-check, dictionary and thesaurus, so it's much easier to edit and improve your work.

3. There is a word count, so you can easily see how many words you have written. This is especially useful when doing things such as the writing competitions, where there are usually a maximum amount of words you can write.

4. If you want a printed copy of your movella, you can just print out the pages of your story easily. For example, if you want to give someone your movella to read and give feedback on it, it's much easier for them to read as a portable printed copy than having to read it online. This is also much cheaper than ordering a papella if it’s not your final copy.


Of course, these are all just my opinions, but still, I hope you found them useful :)
