A brief session to spark your own creativity, with Mhairi Owens

Last summer we asked some of the poets who read at StAnza 2020 for their top tips on writing poems, provided as short videos or sound clips. We will be releasing one of these each day at noon throughout StAnza 2021. These sessions offer writing prompts to create your own poems.

Today we hear from Mhairi Owens, the first poet writing in Scots to win the main prize of the Wigtown Poetry Competition, about the importance of making mayonnaise for writing poetry.

Participants: Mhairi Owens
Mhairi Owens: Ann Vance
