Read what How To Train Your Dragon creator Cressida Cowell has to say on bringing fantasy to life in her new series

One of our most-loved children's authors, Cressida has fascinating things to say about the role books have to play in children's lives and how to create books that really engage young readers with boundless imaginations.

Also in this issue, story consultant Jeff Lyons begins a two-part series tackling the insidious creative writing myths that may hamper a writer's flow and get in the way of you getting on with your writing.

After all that creativity, it's back to the nitty-gritty end of a writer's life, with useful articles on marketing your book and looking at channels to increase your overseas sales.

We cover all the bases for you in WM: inspiration, creative writing advice, and information about the best ways to create a platform and get your work out to its readers. So don't miss out on all the advice and opportunities we've got to offer you this month – make sure you've got your copy of the November issue! It's in the shops today, and you can get the digital issue downloaded to your device by visiting the website. We hope you enjoy it, and that your writing goes from strength to strength!
