Can Creativity Be Taught? With Maggie Gee, Tessa Hadley, David Harsent and Fay Weldon CBE

Wednesday 8th May 2013 6:30pm - 8:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event

'Creativity is contagious. Pass it on' said Albert Einstein. But is creativity simply a skill that can be imparted and acquired, like conjugating a verb or wiring a plug? Or are its origins much more mysterious than that - a strand of DNA or perhaps a divine gift? Grappling with these questions this evening are four of Bath Spa University's new Professors of Creative Writing, three acclaimed novelists Maggie Gee, Tessa Hadley and Fay Weldon CBE, and poet and screenwriter David Harsent. Bring both sides of your brain and join us for a glass of wine and a revealing look at the very essence of the creative process.

The evening will be chaired by Guardian and Observer journalist, Rachel Cooke.
