Speaker(s): Katy Darby
Recorded on 2 March 2013 in Alumni Theatre, New Academic Building.
Bored of the same old viewpoint or genre? Want to inject new life into your prose? Katy Darby talks about experimenting and playing around with different approaches to writing fiction. We'll explore the genesis and development of ideas (and come up with some new ones of our own) - and discuss ways of telling a story which can refresh a dusty narrative and teach an old plot new tricks.
Katy Darby is author of The Unpierced Heart, director of short story event Liars' League and writing tutor at City University.
This is the second of three workshops, preceded by Fast Fiction: creative writing and changing technology at 10am, and followed by Based on a True Story at 12noon.
This event forms part of LSE's 5th Space for Thought Literary Festival, taking place from Tuesday 26 February - Saturday 2 March 2013, with the theme 'Branching Out'.
