Event Details

Creative writing workshop for academics with Kip Jones

Thursday 20 & Friday 21 April 2017
10am - 3.30pm
7th floor, Executive Business Centre

This unique event isn’t a typical 'writing retreat' (with trees to hug and lots of time to ruminate), but a very active experience with exercises, suggestions and supportive feedback on participants’ work from Kip Jones and other participants. 

Students and academics will be encouraged to include more creative writing in their outputs, particularly those whose writing includes reporting on narrative and other qualitative methods of research. 

The workshop will also help with publishing in the
wider world of blogs and online outlets, moving work to media and film,
auto-ethnography and even fiction.

Workshop objectives:

  •  Have more of your work read by wider audiences; in other words, impact.
  •  By providing an intense two-day experience the playing field is levelled and
    opportunities for facilitated learning developed.
  •  By engaging in creative writing, it becomes possible for all to write more clearly, more simply, even more creatively, when writing not only for academic publications, but also for outlets previously unimagined.

Methods:The workshop presents opportunities to work with academic material and expand its means of production and dissemination to new and creative levels through interfaces with techniques from the arts and humanities,including:

  •  Blog and magazine writing
  •  Film treatments and scripts
  •  Poetry and fictional exercises.
