Narrative Technique

£20 Make an enquiry

Narrative is the art of influencing your reader, and it extends to all types of writing.

As a published, agented author, experienced teacher and long-time apprentice of some very successful people (such as Paul McAuley), I'm in a good position to help you understand a reader's psychology and how to manipulate it.

Academic writing is the art of manipulating a reader's thoughts. Fiction is the art of manipulating a person's emotions and imagination. I'll quote China Mieville: "My job is not to give the readers what they want, but to make them want what I have to give." My job as a teacher is to show you how.

I'm also quite experienced at motivating myself and others, having taught a wide array of subjects before settling into the Creative Writing department at Kingston University. I now write full-time and teach part-time, privately.

  • I teach from home (or a fixed venue)
  • I teach online
