We often recommend certain books to writers looking for support and confidence, for insight into writing practice, or for advice on craft. We’re always finding new resources, too. So we thought we’d compile a list of some of the best books out there if you’re embarking – or continuing – on a writing journey, and would like some helpful company along the way. Lots of these are written by veterans of the industry, and are bursting with invaluable wisdom which you can return to over and over.

Browse below, or take a look at the full list on our bookshop.org page, where you can order books online while also supporting independent booksellers.

Happy writing!
