Who wants to be a writer? We made a game about the life of a writer, based on a survey with authors coming to the Festival of Books. As in real life, you might get a book deal or fall into a pit of despair. Feel free to play instead of finishing your manuscript. #books #writing #writers
Have you always wanted to be a writer? Now's your chance. Play our online game, "How to Be a Writer ," and experience the ups and downs of the literary life.
