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! :)


19. The Best Genre

Uniqua Niques: Do you prefer to read in the same genre as you write or do you prefer to read a range of novels?

Scott's answer: I usually read YA Science Fiction for pleasure, but sometimes I read a lot of non-fiction for my research. For example, when I was writing Leviathan, because it was about airships and World War One, there seemed like so much I had to know that I ended up reading non-fiction almost exclusively for a couple of years. Or I read some fiction but it was teen books, adventure novels, from 1914- from that period. But that’s an exception, just for fun I usually read YA. That’s my kind of thing.
