Boosting Impact will be facilitated
by Le Groupe Ouest and will build upon a methodology tailor-made for Boosting Impact.
Le Groupe Ouest is known for their famous method: Pre-writing.
Pre-writing is designed to address the challenge faced by writers starting to write too early.
From the field of neuroscience/cognitive science, it is apparent
that writing too early paralyses the birth of new story-possibilities and stronger or more surprising story paths.
Pre-writing builds upon oral storytelling and feedback
from the audience or other writers.
Inspiration from outside our industry is another important
element in Boosting Impact.
