We all have a story to tell, and the way we communicate it can be infinitely creative. Expressing ourselves effectively is also an essential skill that can help build confidence in life and work. Club members explore many different aspects of written and spoken communication, and look at the techniques that can transform ideas, thoughts and facts into something extraordinary.
Writing&Talking Clubs work on diverse communication projects including writing folk tales, travel guides, newspapers, and launching Norwich’s first literary festival. Clubs have also created zines, marketing campaigns and stories for film, TV and video games. Clubs also take part in Masterclasses with professionals such as journalists, poets, game developers and theatre critics.
Television and radio, film, theatre and social media – these are just a few of the industries that need people with a love of words and the skills to use them well. The book and journal publishing sector alone is worth almost five million a year to the UK economy.
