Description

Award-winning dreampunk & fantasy author Anna Tizard plays the surrealist word game of Exquisite Corpse to create unique writing prompts, by mixing words you've posted at annatizard.com/play.

Results are often hilarious at first, but after a little digging, they develop into wild, weird & unexpected stories.

This is a creative, evolving show:
Shows 1-37 usually have in-depth discussions on writing before game play.
Shows 28-33 are Alice in Wonderland specials.
Shows 37 & beyond focus on storytelling, and the story brainstorms are deeper & richer.
Dip in wherever you fancy! A ton of fun.

Spring is here, you’d almost believe it’s summer here in the UK, but I like to think that no matter where you are or what time it is, or time of year, there is always the opportunity for ideas to blossom. Think of your imagination as a garden. You could just leave it and let it fill up with weeds, or you can tend it, dig deep to turn over fresh soil, find things you didn’t know were buried there, and plant the seeds of the most exciting ideas that could grow into the most spectacular stories.   So let’s hold up our proverbial trowels (a pen will do) and get digging...
