Experimental writing: neuro-linguistic programming techniques in innovative writing
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractThe practice-led research project aims to study the application of Neuro-Linguistic Programming techniques and hypnotic methods of manipulation as a theoretical framework in experimental and innovative writing. A creative piece based on elements of ergodic literature was drafted in written form, aiming to experiment freely with the patterns and approaches that encompass NLP in an innovative environment to examine the poetic and linguistic devices that arise from this. However, the direct application of NLP and hypnotic approaches in writing prove challenging as the text lacks the ability to adapt to the reader which is a fundamental requirement for the effective use of most of these techniques. Considering this, and the ethical issues involved in the use of hypnotic approaches to manipulate and change the reader’s emotional state, belief patterns or behaviour in unethical ways. The innovative uses derived from these approaches offer a useful insight into the ways in which the text and reader’s perception can be manipulated in creative ways.
