Playing with words, inventing new forms

GENRE: Fiction
Totleigh Barton

Prose doesn’t have to be prosaic. We can enliven our writing and re-imagine the limits of storytelling by bringing in ideas from movie scripts and video games, Powerpoint and treasure hunts. In this playful course, we’ll investigate experimental writing, focus whole narrative arcs, examine the relationships between style, form and narrative, and free our work from the tyranny of conventional thinking. Come and wander through the wonderful things words can do.
