Language science for creative writers

Language science for creative writers


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

This one-day workshop brings creative writing and applied emotion research together. In the morning, we'll engage in several writing activities. You'll then learn how communication behaviour is measured and analysed by working with real-world data. In the afternoon, you'll turn these skills to character, dialogue, narrative voice, and author influence. Throughout, you'll share insights and feedback with your peers.

In addition to group activities and seminars, I offer all participants a thirty-minute tutorial.

You'll leave this course with a deeper understanding of human behaviour and interactions, tailored toward creative writing practices.

What's included in the price?

All course materials.

What you will need

An interest in human behaviour and creative writing. A current project is optional.
