Talking About Creativity and Neuroscience, Sue Woolfe , Kevin Brophy , single work interview
'Editor's Note: In 2007 Australian novelist and creative writing teacher, Sue Woolfe, published a fascinating exploration of contemporary neuroscience and what it can tell us about the physiological processes involved in acts of creativity. Her book, The Mystery of the Cleaning Lady, is structured as a quest narrative in which the central character, a novelist who has become stuck in the middle of writing a novel, seeks the science she hopes will help her rekindle her project. After reading and enjoying this book, I decided to invite Sue Woolfe and fellow author and thinker, Kevin Brophy, to talk (via email) about this intriguing topic.' - Gina Mercer, Island.
