Video Q & A with Catherine Johnson

by Wei Ming Kam Author Interviews, Course News

A few weeks ago, some of the Curtis Brown Creative team had a chat with Catherine Johnson, YA author and our tutor on our creative writing courses for children’s writers. We asked her a few questions about writing for children and teenagers, what she thought about novel-writing courses, and what her tips were for writing a great start to a novel.



As well as expert teaching from published authors, all our selective three- and six-month novel-writing courses offer dedicated modules on submitting your novel to literary agents – and include sessions on writing a synopsis and preparing a covering letter.
