Writing the Body with Georgina Bruce

In this workshop, you will explore techniques for making your writing more immediate, vivid and visceral.

You will have the opportunity to explore the connections between the physical, emotional, and political in your writing, and learn how to create powerful and arresting effects.

This workshop is supported by the Edinburgh Napier University’s MA Creative Writing.

The Masters in Creative Writing at Edinburgh Napier University loves science fiction, fantasy and horror, making it unique among postgrad degrees. The MA focuses master-class feedback and one-to-one mentoring instead of the usual peer review workshops, preparing students for life as professional genre writers. It offers specialist modules on writing graphic novels and YA fiction, important creative areas ignored by other writing programmes.
