Writing Studio: How to write irony

Irony is a powerful tool to use in your writing when approached well. It adds depth to stories, showing the contrast between how something is against how it seems. 

Irony also enhances readers’ engagement as they must read between the lines. That’s why many of the best novels have an element of irony within their pages. 

In our Writing Studio, author Shelly Wilson will show you three types of irony, explore which is right for your story and how to use it to create impact.

You can drop into the Writing Studio anytime between 11am and 4pm (BST) on Thursday 17th September in our free writing community to hear Shelly’s tips and join in the conversations around irony. She’ll also answer your writing questions.
