How do writers transfer their ideas to the written word?
Find some inspiration for your own writing from author and performance poet Carmen Marcus.

Carmen Marcus lives in the Victorian spa town of Saltburn-by-the-Sea. Her writing has been described as 'crackling dangerously with inherited magic yet achieving contemporary vitality'. She is in much demand as a performance poet and has appeared at the Royal Festival Hall. Recently she has been commissioned by BBC Radio 3's Verb New Voices. How Saints Die is her first novel, and as a work in progress it won New Writing North's 'Northern Promise' Award.
