Making Your Words Count – Telling a Great Story

Communicating your ideas in ways that challenge, provoke, entertain and excite

Brilliant, cutting-edge research is one thing, but sometimes it’s only half the picture; now you also need to be able to communicate your results to the outside world in a way that is exciting, entertaining and accessible. This session focuses on both the writing and editing processes to take your writing to the next level and make it something that will grab and then keep your reader’s attention. We’ll look at bringing your ideas to life, adding characters, action, dialogue and stories and borrowing the techniques of books, plays and movies to make them exciting, compelling and convincing.
