SRA Cymru free evening seminar: Writing creatively for research
Creative writing is often regarded as a separate craft from non-fiction writing. Conversely, this seminar will demonstrate that non-fiction writing is highly creative. You will learn how the techniques of fiction, poetry, and play-or screen-writing can be an asset to research. With plenty of time for discussion, and some interactive activities, this seminar will increase your available options for both analytic and report-writing. The seminar is relevant to academic and practice-based researchers.

She carries out commissioned research and evaluation, mainly for public and voluntary sector organisations and partnerships. Helen is passionate about clear communication through language and has published several books and e-books, contributed to academic journal articles and book chapters. She has co-written 'Self-Publishing for Academics' with Dr Nathan Ryder.
