Written Up/Listen Up: Physical archives & oral histories as a source of inspiration for creative writing
Dr Beatrice Colin, University of Strathclyde
Helen Foster, University of Strathclyde
A workshop in two parts exploring archive material as a source of inspiration for creative writing.
Part one, Written Up, will explore how to use archive material such as texts, photographs and other visual images as resources for creative work. Written exercises will support participants as they practice a range of different approaches and techniques in this fun, informal workshop.
Part two, Listen Up will consider the untapped potential of oral history archives as a source for authenticity and creativity in writing; different forms of sound archives (physical and online) as sources for creative writing. Participants will be invited to take part in a series of writing activities using voices from the past to encourage new spontaneous creative response.

Beautiful Sentences: Enhancing your theoretical research through material creativity (drop-in session)
Jonah Coman, University of St Andrews
Mark Twain, Sylvia Plath, Franz Kafka, Henri Matisse - what do they have in common? They are all thinkers that have used writing and crafting in their creative practices. This all-day drop-in workshop creates a space for theoretical researchers to disrupt their words-on-a-page process and to take a material and playful approach to research. The workshop will be open the whole day, and you can spend as much or as little time thinking through your research with acrylic paint and cotton thread. Participants are encouraged to drop in and out during the day and allow their creativity to run awry. Many crafts, printed and found materials will be provided, but participants are encouraged to bring photos, textiles, printouts, sketchbooks, art supplies, and anything with a flat surface that might be used in your material exploration.
