Goodreads asked Sylvia FitzSimons:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Sylvia FitzSimons First of all, take one or more courses in creative writing and/or journalism. Read lots of good quality literature - books, articles, anything; and pay attention to the different styles. Choose a genre you have extensive knowledge of, or a great interest in (humour, romance, etc.).
