Author and creative writing tutor Natalie Young reveals the books she'll be referring to during Find Your Voice, our online writing course designed to guide writers looking to build their confidence and voice, and explore their personality on the page.

The course is suitable for writers of fiction and creative non-fiction, and will provide all participants with a collaborative space in which to develop individual writing styles and book ideas, making it perfect for writers either in the embryonic stages of a writing journey, or for those with a completed draft but aware of the need to further interrogate their work and/or regain creative momentum.
