Tips to Release Creativity

Getting Writer’s Block is unfortunately common for some of us, here are a few ideas that may help

Using prompts can be a good way of releasing your imagination, sometimes a single word or a phrase can spark your creative juices. Open a book and read out a random sentence – what picture does this bring to mind – get out your pen and start writing!

Or what about the senses, try writing each one of the five senses, and then put words or sentences to each, this should evoke feelings and create an images:

for example smell – honeyed perfume; sight – violet hue.

Look for sentences that you can link together, using the material you’ve created, write a poem that stimulates each of the senses. Or concentrate on one particular sense as William Carlos Williams does below, one of the principal poets of the Imagist movement. (A literary movement launched by British and American poets that advocated the use of free verse, common speech patterns, and concrete images as a reaction to Victorian sentimentalism).

I was born and live in rural North Wales (UK) and found poetry again after a lifetime, so grateful I did :)
