Nathan Filer TEDx: How to Write A Bestselling Novel

Writing.ie | Resources | Getting Started

We’re all about writing (obviously) at Writing.ie, but we understand that sometimes it’s quicker to gather information from video – which is why we made the National Emerging Writer Programme. If your plan is to write that novel this year, this TEDx video from Nathan Filer will help! Get your notebook ready…

Filer is the author of The Shock of the Fall, winner of the Costa Book of the Year (2013), the Betty Trask Prize (2014), and Popular Fiction Book of the Year at the National Book Awards (2014). It has been translated into twenty-seven languages.

As a stand-up poet he has performed at many of the UK’s leading literary events, including Latitude, Port Eliot and the Cheltenham Literature Festival. His poems have been broadcast on BBC radio 4’s Bespoken Word and Wondermentalist Cabaret, and BBC radio 7’s Poetry Stand-up. In 2005 his poetry short film Oedipus won the BBC Best New Filmaker Award and Berlin’s Zebra Poetry Film Award.

He has contributed essays and reviews to The New York Times, The Guardian, The Independent, Daily Mail and Metro, amongst others. And he has been a panelist on the BBC radio 2 Book Club; BBC radio 3’s Free Thinking; and BBC radio 4’s Open Book, Front Row, All in the Mind and the Today Programme.

He lectures in Creative Writing at Bath Spa University.
