About the Course

Authors deal as much with psychology as they do with the craft itself: their own, that of their readers, and that of their characters.

On this one-day course, you'll receive a detailed introduction to creative psycholinguistics. You'll cover key principles in communication and behaviour analysis, as they relate to the craft of writing (e.g. character creation, plot structuring).

Set in rural Devon, at a venue suited to group learning and creative activity, you'll work with an experienced facilitator whose academic career is focused on the neuropsychology of both creative writing and human behaviour (BA English with Creative Writing; MA Professional Writing; PhD Neuropsycholinguistics).

Whether you're working on a novel, a collection of poems, or non-fiction, there's something here for you.

These courses are semi-structured. You're welcome to bring specific queries and work (at any stage) for discussion.
