Good to spend time talking about poetry and science with the lovely people at York St John University last week. I shared some of my experiences using science as inspiration with students on the undergrad programme, and picked up some new ideas… Such as brain-computer interface technology, which aims to use electrical impulses to mimic central nervous system connections & restore movement following paralysis. As well as a handsome campus with views of the Minster, YSJ has a popular and growing creative writing programme. Find out more on the programme’s blog. Thanks to Abi Curtis & JT Welsch for making me so welcome.
