Synopsis

Poets by Brian Moses

A series of questions are presented to famous authors, such as Michael Rosen, Ted Hughes and Valerie Bloom, to ask them how they write, where their inspiration comes from, what techniques they use and how they solve common writing problems. The process is explored from original ideas and what tools to write with through to promoting the finished book. It looks at plot, characters, settings, story and poetry types, beginnings and endings as well as what to do when it all goes wrong!
