NYWM Writer Profile: Amelia Dunn


amelia dunnName: Amelia Dunn

Age: 19

State: Victoria

What is your NYWM goal? 

I want to be able to spread the word about my unpublished work. I’ve almost completed two different novels and I want to know about the industry. I want people to see my work before it’s out there so they know what I’m about.

What kind of writing do you do?

Teen fiction mostly, I loosely base my stories around people and events in my life. I am currently working on 5 different projects, some scripts for film but mostly novels. I like to separate my ideas and connect with a wide variety of people.

What inspires or motivates you to write and reach your goals?

I began writing because it was a way to express myself, to allow my emotions and thoughts breathing space. Once I began I couldn’t stop really, and I had to give my characters a life. Each book has meaning to my life. Each character is very important to me.

What are you currently reading?

The Harry Potter series is something I can and never will get enough of. I’ve read the series twice over and I’m back on it again because I simply love it. J.K. Rowling invites you into an entirely different world and this series is something I cannot put down at the moment.
