Anna Stassen: Editor The Discworld Series by Terry Pratchett has long been high on my list of books to read when my creative fountain feels depleted.


The series is an enormously inspiring and fascinating social commentary, presented via an almost Tolkien or Potter-esque fantasy world. Filled with brilliant satire and insightful critiques of everything from organised religion to women’s rights, all the books make you think and


hopefully re-examine the world we live in with fresh eyes.


Creativity is often born from coming back to something well known, or even mundane, from a different view point, which is why the Discworld series is so inspiring. It picks you up, takes you on a mad journey and then drops you off with a fresh perspective.
