The 'Writing As Process' workshop will focus on how, by engaging in a specific creative process, a writer can generate material for poems and shape that material into a finished piece of writing. Don Schofield, the workshop leader will read from his own work and discuss the process the poems went through on the way to becoming completed pieces. He will also provide some of the theoretical basis for the process. He will then lead workshop participants through an exercise to demonstrate the beginning stages of the writing process, discuss the results the participants come up with and suggest directions they can take in order to turn the 'raw material' they have created into finished poems or stories.
