Samantha | 70 comments I read a writing guide a few years ago that was really good, but I can't remember the title. I remember the cover was blue, the writer was a teen novelist from New Zealand and it had tips and a few prompts including "beautiful people ugly noses.

Adele | 1206 comments Well, at the risk of being thought that I can't tell the difference between New Zealand and Australia, John Marsden is a teen author who wrote a writing guide with a blue cover: Everything I Know About Writing by John Marsden

Samantha | 70 comments No, sorry the writer of the one I read was a woman.

SBC (essbeecee) | 874 comments I can't think of any NZ female teen writers who have written books about writing. The only one that comes to mind is Joy Cowley's Writing from the Heart: How to Write for Children but that's got a red cover and her writing tends to be for younger audiences.

Kangaroo Press Pty Ltd (1989), Paperback, 159 pages

Samantha | 70 comments Nope.

Adele | 1206 comments This sounds like the kind of guide you are talking about, and it is by a woman, but I don't believe she is from NZ: Seize the Story A Handbook for Teens Who Like to Write by Victoria Hanley
