Dr Sarah Haas talks about her research into this pattern of storytelling, its use in different disciplines and how it might be applied to one's teaching or writing process.

This is an interactive seminar, and participants are asked to write one short story using a task adapted from Julian Edge.

The event will be particularly useful for those interested in writing development and academic writing support.
