Example text

It was an image of the first Christmas, of the shepherds on the hillside outside Bethlehem. Suddenly, the whole sky was lit up with these angels singing to the shepherds. I began thinking about the angels – how they could appear so quickly and how they could transform from one form and shape into another. The first line of the poem is ‘We are made from light’. I wanted to get across the idea that these angels were made of a special substance, light – light that had changed its shape. I was trying to think of the brightest thing I could think of, like a cold silvery light.

Then I have to wait until there is something else to add to it to make it whole. 9 10 Creating Writers Within reason, nearly any idea is good – in the right place. But do not spend too long trying to fit a square peg in a round hole. If something is not quite working, leave it, and come back to it later when you can view the piece more clearly.

JAN DEAN: Poetry What advice do you have on using words in a poem? JAN DEAN: When you are writing a first draft of a poem you tend to use familiar words. But the most familiar word is not necessarily the best one. I like to approach things sideways, and poetry is all about approaching things from different angles. So, you might want to choose a word that is almost familiar, but not quite. So if you’re describing an action you might think of something obvious. And then when you read it back later you realise that it’s not quite the word that is needed as it doesn’t describe your subject as well as it could.
