Meet Young Adult Author: Scott Gilmore | Dystopian Fiction | Creative Writing Tips | Blogger


Hi, guys, and welcome to the SG Fiction YouTube
channel. My name is Scott Gilmore. I am a young adult and teen fiction author from Northern
Ireland. I’m going to use this video to tell you just a little bit about me. One of the main reasons I started this YouTube
channel was to make content for teenagers, young adults, and children, to show them that
writing can be fun. Being a classroom teacher for over ten years,
and also having a Master’s Degree in Creative Writing, I wanted to use both my in class
experience, and my own writing experience, to show children, young adults and teenagers,
that writing can be fun, but also that they can unleash a creative side that they possibly
never knew was there in the first place. So, when it came to making content, I wanted
to make sure that the people viewing this channel would be able to have free content
that they could use to try and inspire them to write stories of their own. As well as having my Writing Tips series for
young people and more experienced writers, I would use the YouTube channel for the main
promotion for my debut novel, Inside Iris. One thing that I’ve been lucky enough to
experience through Inside Iris, is being able to take it back into classroom setting. I
have been able to share my own writing process, as well as getting to know the writing and
creative processes of the children within the class. Kids are inspiring, and that’s
what drove me to write the book in the first place. Writers, like myself, and other artists see
what they do as a very therapeutic process that can help to relieve stress, anxiety and
other worries that they may have. I firmly believe that everyone has a story
within them whether they are seven or seventy. All it takes is for you to take that chance
and take that story within you and put it on a page. It may not be able to be published
and it may not be for anyone else’s eyes other than your own, but at least you can
say you told the story that you wanted to tell. I hope to create content on this channel so
that there’s something for everyone. So, make sure that before you leave today, to
hit the subscribe button and the bell icon so that you don’t miss out on any future

you feel that you’ve got to know me a little bit better and I look forward to getting to
know you more as time goes on. Thanks for watching. See you again next time.
