People who have saved this event:



Dr Paul McDonald, course leader for creative and professional writing at Wolverhampton University, will explore how classic theories of humour can be made relevant to writers. Hooky Street Press is a new art-writing project co-ordinated by Chris Poolman. The project brings together artists, writers, academics and comedians in developing a model of art-writing that draws upon methodologies from comical writing genres outside of art. The project includes talks, a symposium, conference and the inaugural Art-World Pun Off Championships. These events are designed to provide a framework for the creation of an art-writing group. This will hopefully attract writers from different disciplines outside of art interested in the wider implications of the project. For more information please see: www.hookystreetpress.com
