23 Writing Tips from Booker-Prize Winning Authors | Aerogramme Writers’ Studio23 Writing Tips from Booker-Prize Winning Authors.

Eleanor Catton, winner in 2013 for The Luminaries
‘Read everything. You can learn from everything that has a narrative—books, of course, but also films, TV shows, computer games, advertisements, conversations, speeches, articles, the news. Read things you don’t like, and try to figure out why you don’t like them. Ask ‘why?’ and ‘how?’ as much as possible, and don’t be content with an easy answer.’”

Other authors offering advice include Hilary Mantel, Howard Jacobson, Anne Enright and John Banville. These authors have the credentials to offer a bit of advice, I think.
