Hypnotic Writing

6:30p.m. to 8:30p.m.
Spoon
6A Nicolson St
Edinburgh GB

Done well, writing of any kind is a form of hypnosis. Paraphrasing the Oxford English Dictionary, hypnosis is, "The induction of a state of consciousness in which a person ...is highly responsive to suggestion or direction." Why do we write? To suggest something, or encourage action of some kind. So writing is a form of hypnosis (or it should be if it's done well). So how do we do it well? This session will set you down the path toward your own answer to that question.

Bring one of the following:
A little box of mischief.
An open mind.
The biggest, thickest elastic band you can find, buy or steal.
Your promise to bring a friend to the next class.
Your promise to contribute to a future class.

About the teacher, Roy Henderson

As well as being a software consultant, I'm a writer, illustrator, and football obsessive (writing and editing for @RAWKeditor, @blzzrd and @theanfieldwrap). I also dabble in a little creative writing from time to time. I'm @royhendo on Twitter if you're nosey.
