Event description
A symposium to celebrate the publication of Dr. Josie Barnard’s book, The Multimodal Writer: Creative Writing Across Genres and Media.

About this Event

We are pleased to invite you to celebrate the publication of Dr. Josie Barnard’s book, 'The Multimodal Writer: Creative Writing Across Genres and Media'. This research symposium on multimodal writing with international guest speaker Professor Nigel Krauth, author of 'Creative Writing and the Radical', will be followed by a drinks reception.

In our digital age, writers need a new creative flexibility. The ability to move between types of writing and technologies - often at speed - is increasingly essential. Yet, such flexibility can be difficult to achieve, and, how to develop it remains a pressing challenge. This symposium addresses how writers can not merely survive but, rather, thrive in an era characterised by fast-paced change.

Schedule:

4pm: Welcome (coffee)

4.30pm: Plenary lecture: Creative writing and the radical: Teaching and learning the fiction of the future, international guest speaker Professor Nigel Krauth, introduced and chaired by Dr. Josie Barnard

5.30-6pm: Q&A

6pm-7pm: Launch of Dr. Josie Barnard’s new book The Multimodal Writer plus networking (reception)

The event is free to attend and refreshments will be available but places are strictly limited so please RSVP in order to guarantee your place.
