In the fourth episode in the Place season of Elements, I talk to Charlie Pearson, Helen Lehndorf and Marolyn Krasner about place and what it is to write it. This episode was recorded the morning after their incredible show From the 4410 to the 4412.
Some of the things we talk about are:
Snails: Artist run spaces is an amazing place in Palmerston North you can visit their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/snailsartistrunspace/
Marolyn has an amazing website where you can find out more about her book The Radicals https://www.marolynkrasner.com/
What happens when you introduce imaginary people into a place you live in? Choose an imaginary person – it could be a character you devised, it could be an imaginary person from TV or books. Now put that person in a place you live or know well. It could be where you’re sitting right now. Free write for as long as you want. Try not to lift your pen. Introduce another person. Make them have a fight.
