Research output: Book/ReportBook - authoredpeer-review


You can learn a lot about writing through direct observation from life, like artists do when they work on a still life or a landscape, and that’s what this book is all about. It’s made up of practical activities covering writing techniques like rhythm, sense of place, word pictures, character, and dialogue. Each section includes short exercises, storytelling tips, research and information gathering activities, as well as suggestions for designing your own set of powerful, tailor-made writing prompts.

This book will help you to let go of judgement and self-criticism and get some words written. You’ll learn to conquer your fear of the blank page, collect source material for your writing projects, and come up with new ideas time and time again.
