Could 'method writing' be the future for novelists?
Thomas W Hodgkinson is a screenwriter and author who's just launched a new literary movement: method writers, calling on other authors to try similar techniques to see whether or not it benefits their writing.

Sarah Churchwell author of Careless People: Murder, Mayhem and the Invention of The Great Gatsby said on the programme: "Actors using this method are doing what writers have always done, which is trying to put themselves in a emotional space"
