Many writers use their blog as a way of getting them started each day or just as a way to take a break from something they’re working on. Freelance creative, writer and social entrepreneur – and avid blogger – Yemisi Blake looks at how you can also use blogs as creative spaces where you can play and explore, giving examples and recommending blogs by other writers to read. There is also practical information and advice on setting up a blog and getting people to read it.
Yemisi Blake has recently been an Emerging Artist in Residence at the Southbank Centre where he collaborated with other artists, curating events and mentoring young creatives. In 2008 he co-curated a blogging project for the Southbank Centre’s Poetry International Festival. He is currently an Associate Artist in Company and Practice Development with the North London based charity All Change.
