The Fusebox - adding spark to your writing

From Standing Room Only, 2:27 pm on 10 September 2017

Writers write about writing - a lot. And around 30 New Zealand novelists, playwrights, essayists, poets and short story writers reflect on their craft in a self-help book called The Fuse Box. Among the topics covered are writer's block... making the most of accidents... how to get started... and holding onto your mojo. Lynn Freeman talks to the book's co-editor Chris Price, and two of the contributors - Raj Chakraborti, who teaches creative writing at Rimutaka Prison, and poet James Brown whose new poetry collection, Floods Another Chamber, has just come out.
