Session: Writing for a Cause: Dos and Don'ts with Speaker Q&A
Audience: All Levels
Writing with an aim to change behaviour or change the world is perilous and can lead to preachy or clunky writing, but when done well it can be transformative, inspiring the imagination and infusing readers with hope, excitement and useful knowledge on how they can be effective in the world. This talk will briefly cover Denise's research in this field and give examples of good and bad practices. It will be a great talk to attend for any writers who’d like to enter the next (free to enter) green stories novel writing competition.
By the end of this session, you will learn how to:
- Write for a cause
- Draw on research on readers’ responses to issues in fiction (main focus) and non-fiction.
