'The Rise of Creative Writing'

The Rise of Creative Writing: Poetry

Organised by the Open University Contemporary Cultures of Writing Seminar, in collaboration with the Institute of English Studies at the University of London

1 May, 17:30-19:30
Room 261, Senate House (second floor)

I will be speaking, together with Stephanie Norgate, at this event next Tuesday, where I'll be discussing the culture of creative writing within universities, and its impact on the wider culture - in particular on poetry, poets, universities themselves, and what its rise might suggest about the unspoken needs and latent energies of contemporary society. I'm looking forward to it.

All are welcome. More details about the event, and the seminar series of which it forms a part, are available from the Institute of English Studies and the Open University.
