It starts with whispers.
Then someone picks up a stone.
Finally, the fires begin.
When people turn on witches, the innocents suffer. . . .
Tiffany Aching has spent years studying with senior witches, and now she is on her own. As the witch of the Chalk, she performs the bits of witchcraft that aren’t sparkly, aren’t fun, don’t involve any kind of wand, and that people seldom ever hear about: She does the unglamorous work of caring for the needy.
Uh-oh. Eddie's little sister gets a "bright idea" just days before the Battle of the Bands.

Lady Cordelia Bannister simply cannot marry a man she has not chosen herself, no matter what her father decrees.

Talking Writing is a vibrant and new conversation about writing. As a digital-only publication it collects the best pieces from the NSW Writers' Centre magazine, Newswrite, a trusted and much loved resource for writers. The pieces were published between 2010 and 2012 and, as is evident from the contents list alone, in those three short years the magazine has covered an incredibly diverse range of genres. We decided very early on when building this ebook that we wanted to have a very wordy title to feature as many genres as possible.
