About the talk

Engaging with writing is an opportunity to design and refine how we identify ourselves. This talk considers ‘sentence energy’ as a way to achieve sharper, stronger writing, with simple strategies offered to get our students expressing ideas freely and creatively. These include playing with word order, finding freedom through constraint, and the benefits of collaboration and writing every day.
