Words From the Wellspring

This session involves a series of fun, practical creative writing activities to increase the enjoyment of word play, stimulate the imagination and overcome barriers to written expression.

Taking Robert Frost's comments that a poem 'begins in delight and ends in wisdom' and 'I have never started a poem yet whose end I knew', the session will explore the different stages of the writing process from initial inspiration, the building of the word-hoard, rough drafting and revision, and see how the act of writing is itself an act of discovery to create something unexpected.

The session will be led by Bob Beagrie, a poet, playwright and senior lecturer in creative writing at Teesside University.
