Lucy V Hay’s blog Bang2Write is one of only eight finalists in the UK Blog Awards in the PR, Media, Marketing and Communications category. The finalists were chosen by popular vote and the overall winners will be selected by expert judges Heather Fell and Dan Holt. The winner will be announced at an award ceremony in April.
Bang2write is a blog by a script editor and writer, FOR writers. Lucy Hay has been a script editor for five years and a script reader for nearly fifteen. She’s also a scriptwriter and novelist herself, so knows what it's like to be on BOTH sides of the table. B2W is also the place to find advice on genre; novel writing; grammar, spelling and punctuation mistakes; writing careers; taking meetings; dealing with feedback; using social media and much much more.
Known best for its critique of female characterisation, B2W leads the way on SENSIBLE and REALISTIC breakdowns of characters. B2W stands for inclusivity and the 'alternative view', writing about diversity and representation wherever possible. B2W boasts members from all communities, marginalised and not, and tries to make ALL feel welcome and their voice heard. B2W also provides moral and emotional support via a huge network of highly engaged, positive and approachable 'Bang2writers', especially in the dedicated Facebook group. There are also lots of FREE resources available, including PDF downloads, ebooks, reference guidelines, cheat sheets and checklists. You can join the community here.
Lucy Hay’s thriller debut, THE OTHER TWIN, will be published by Orenda Books in July 2017, as well as in audiobook by Audible. Her young adult novels, THE DECISION series, are also available on Amazon Kindle and Lizzie’s story was published in Germany by Rowohlt.
