It's back! Writing Challenges series 2

Writing about web page

Writing Challenges is back with series 2 of David Morley’s podcasts on creative writing.

David is concentrating on writing fiction this term. We explore the motivations for writing, style, character, points of view and revisions.

Anyone who is interested in creative writing should find these interesting – that book inside you might even get written!

Here is Series 2 episode 1 – The House of Fiction:

creative spaces – working practices no.1

Something on my mind for a while has been the question of creative working spaces.

Students have the Learning Grid and Reinvention Centre.

Academics will shortly have the Teaching Grid .

Is there not a need for a similar space for administrators?

It would be interesting to trial a space for administrators to use for impromptu get togethers and creative play. Note that the coffee bar doesn’t really count for this, nor do meeting rooms as they aren’t really the best places for this sort of environment.

So, I have a proposition. As part of Warwick iCast there is an editing suite in the back of RSS in University House Annex. During term time it’s a bit busy but out of term time there is some capacity in it so here’s an invitation for a trial period. Any administrators who want to use the room to chuck ideas around can come and use the space to just do that.

Of course there are some ground rules.

1. You have to accept that there will be people doing editing in the corner – just ignore us as we will ignore you
2. No more than 4 people at once – otherwise things get too crowded
3. No senior administrators – i leave it to your discretion to decide if you fit that description
4. No meetings – really – if it looks like you’re having a meeting you will be asked to leave.
5. I reserve the right to shut the door if I really need to.

There’s a video camera and MP3 recorder if you want to record your thoughts. Bring your own coffee mugs though.

So if you want a bit of space to think about stuff with a colleague in a relaxed spot then please feel free to pop along. Part of the challenge will be to find it in the first place – but hey! look at it as a creative task!

Note that you need to give me a chance to tidy up first.

If this is interesting post a comment below. If I get a favourable response i’ll offically kick it off.

Writing Challenges – New Podcast

Writing about web page

Today we launched a new podcast – Writing Challenges with David Morley.

The series relates to his recent book The Cambridge Introduction to Creative Writing but takes one element of the book, writing games, a bit further.

Each week David will discuss an aspect of creative writing and then set a challenge which will give your creative gene a little work out.

What we want is for listeners to send in the results of their challenges to us (via and David will read out and discuss some of the submissions in a special edition of the podcast later in the term.

So have a listen and get writing!
