Charles Fernyhough

Former pupil and friend of Mr Fletcher, Charles is a novelist and psychologist. He spoke to the Williams Project about the links between psychology and fiction, in particular about how psychology informs writing, not so much through, say, an understanding of character, but because it shows us how to steer a reader’s mind to feel specific things at specific times. Writing fiction is like ‘writing software for the mind’.
