Kicking the darkness- writing as a mystic


In the beginning was darkness, chaos, the void,; nothing a good cup of coffee couldn’t fix, then. Mike contemplates the dark art of creative writing, explaining why therapy might be more expensive but ultimately less painful. All aspiring writers should definitely miss this seminar.

Mike Riddell is a writer – now a play-writer, too – and a firm Greenbelt favourite; a cynical optimist who believes in everything which is broken, especially people. He’s been an international hitchhiker, druggie, prison inmate, backyard poet, a social activist and chief dog-walker in the household. He is a one-off. Absolutely accessible profundity.
