Hello poets and readers,
If you’ve been following Poetry in Process and would like to delve further into some of the findings of this research, I’m running a short, intensive online course based on the findings of Poetry in Process called Creativity and Innovation, from the 27th-30th July. The course takes the form of four three-hour workshops over four days, and is run through the University of Canberra.
It highlights the following factors that have been found to contribute to innovation:
- The need for physicality, play and movement
- The importance of experiment, especially with different points of view, as a way of enhancing understanding and empathy
- How using novel creative approaches, including collaboration, helps us generate creative ideas and tackle problems
- The value of other disciplines and genres, and how creativity can become a way of managing diverse tasks
