AQR Masterclass - Creative Writing for Researchers
It's our job to bring people to life for our clients. Being nosy about how people live is one of the reasons many of us got into this game in the first place. Writers agonise over the right words to create vivid and memorable characters, they ache over the difference between plot and story. We're not so different, really.
Were all in the business of human truths, so why not bring those worlds together?
This AQR Masterclass will be co-hosted by Kirsten Hesketh (Dougal-Biggs) and Chloe Fowler.
Kirsten started her first career as a planner at Grey Advertising and has been an independent researcher since 1998. Kirstens second career is being a novelist.
Her first novel, Another Us, was published in mid-2020 and was long-listed for The Guardians Not the Booker Prize. And guess what, Kirstens main character, just happens to be a market researcher.
She will talk to us about how to create compelling stories and character-development. Shell reflect on where creativity and qual collide and help us think about we can make our own work more nuanced, readable and vivid.
Chloe runs The Nest Research and is by no means a writer and shes had absolutely nothing published since she was thirteen (though not for lack of trying). But great writing is the cornerstone of her research and she will help lead exercises to let all our inner-writers fly.
The session is suitable for anyone who is curious about where creative writing can enhance their work, or their lives. No experience necessary, but enthusiasm is a must!
There will be chances to flex our language muscles during the session but you will not be asked to share work unless you want to. Dont be shy. All writers think theyre imposters in the genre (and frankly, I think many researchers feel the same!)
