Poetry workshop: Time to write

Alison Chisholm explores a subscriber’s poem that celebrates discovering the creative process

For each of us there is a time of discovery when we realise that writing is the path to follow. It may be a lightbulb moment, a flash of inspiration that reveals the truth in an instant. It may be a growing realisation. It may be a decision to try something new, with the accompanying revelation that the new activity should be writing.
