Re-introducing Hysteria with Eithne Cullen

Spring next year will see the return of the Hysteria Writing Competition, and I already have the Poet in Resident in place. Eithne Cullen, has been both entrant and judge in previous years and to celebrate the return of the competition she created a nicely rounded, simple explanation of the writing process for both writer and poet ..

How great when

You sit with paper and a pen

Sifting words into lines

Thinking of rhymes

Edits and amendings

Rhythms and patterns

Internal distractions

And clever endings

How might you spell it out for entrants?
