The Writing Notebook: FAMILY


by Shaun Levin

The Writing Notebook: Family will help you unravel and bring to life any family drama. Here you’ll find the inspiration to explore your own ancestry, write a vast family saga spanning generations, or tell the story of a wildly (or mildly) dysfunctional family.

The print version of The Writing Notebook: Family is sold out. Digital copies are still available.

For first-time writers or experienced authors, The Writing Notebook will take you to surprising places, spark your imagination, and be your guide to writing your next book.

The only way to write a book is to write it. That's what The Writing Notebook is for. As a guide and workspace, the Writing Notebook offers you writing prompts and activities, suggestions for structuring your book, and enough blank pages in which to start writing it. With description workouts, list-making exercises, a reading list, and ideas for cover design, you’ll never be at a loss for inspiration wherever you are.

The Writing Notebook: Family will prompt you to explore some of the following themes in your book:

  • Family myths and legends
  • Family ties and neighbours
  • Family albums and family trees
  • Outsiders and secrets in the family
  • A family over time
  • Places and spaces
  • Holidays and special occasions
  • How the family gets around
  • Reasons for telling your story
  • Ways to end your story

He is the author of several books, including Seven Sweet Things, A Year of Two Summers and Snapshots of The Boy, and his stories have been anthologised alongside writers such as Ali Smith and Nadine Gordimer.
