As novelists, poets or playwrights, we must not just stand on the shoulders of the literary Giants, but also seek what they sought - to express the way we see the world in a unique and innovation way. Laura Barnett is the author of “The Versions of Us” which spent six weeks in both The Sunday Times hardcover and paperback fiction bestseller list after going straight to number one. As a freelance arts journalist, features writer and theatre critic, Laura has worked for The Guardian, The Observer, The Daily Telegraph and Time Out London to name a few. She will address the question of originality and innovation in fiction. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
