Meet the Authors
One reason why the Seven Steps works so well is because it is based on the way actual authors write. In this 3-part series, professional authors Susanne Gervay and Hazel Edwards divulge their insights on great writing.
Here you can learn some of the tricks and secrets professional writers use to create world class stories.
Use these videos to introduce students to the way that real writers plan and craft their writing, using all the concepts in the Seven Steps in ways that suit them and the story they want to tell. They may be useful as preparation for an author visit (such as during Book Week) or if students are preparing questions to ask of visiting authors.
The full series of over 16 videos is available to subscribers of Seven Steps Online.
Unlock them today and explore how Susanne and Hazel tackle the complete Seven Steps.
