In this ongoing action research, Gilly Smith explores how kinaesthetic learning might inspire confidence in creative writing among young people. She looks at what encourages exciting, expressive and original ideas onto the page, and coherence, clarity and persuasion in the written language of young teenagers. This presentation looks at the journey so far. It explores the use of automatic writing that she already uses with her own broadcast media students at The University of Brighton, and the dynamics of dance. It will take another year to conclude, crossing continents to experiment with dancers and dance students of different ages and cultures the power of automatic writing and storytelling through dance.
