Top London literary agent Charlie Campbell stopped by recently. In a virtual sense, anyway – he was answering questions from our online novel-writing students.

Two creative writing exercises for you today – one designed to help you with plot and character, the other a little muse boost. Enjoy!

http://www.faberacademy.co.uk/news/2015/04/creative-writing-exercises-the-letters/
