Drawing on his experiences as one of our foremost literary novelists, Will Self explores the creative process and its place in a meaningful and fulfilling life.
Creativity is more than a faculty we employ to fill a page or a canvas. To be creative is live a life of creativity, to maximise our opportunities to think creatively and find creative solutions to creative problems, outside of the commercial artistic forms that are offered to us.
Will Self knows first-hand what it means to live a truly creative life. An artistic polymath renowned as a columnist and essayist, a broadcaster and a literary novelist of extraordinary acclaim, few are better placed to teach us how to realise the infinite possibilities of the human imagination.
A far cry from an ordinary ‘creative writing’ lecture, this livestream is an open window into the mind of one of the most inventive, agile and celebrated creative figures at work today.
This talk takes place at 6:30pm British Summer Time.
