Do you want to be a writer?

ELLE Talent Competition 2012: The next lesson - Plot - is here!

We launched the ELLE Talent 2012 writing competition last week and you've been flooding the inbox with your entries!

At ELLE, we make it our mission to seek out talented new writers who we can nurture and support in the magazine.

Last year's winner, Charlotte Barrow continues to write for ELLE and runner up Tamsin Crimmens has written a beautiful memoir in the new issue.

This year, maybe we'll discover you!

And we want to help. Together with the prestigious Faber Academy, we have made a series of online films to help you develop your novel writing skills.

Last week, we showed you how to get started. This week, it's all about plot.
