Paddy Gormley is passionate about language.  He particularly enjoys
writing for radio, which he views as the "only truly hands-free medium of imaginative communication". Radio projects include plays, talks and documentaries.


Many of his plays are written in "proseverse", a heightened form of language
that flows as naturally as prose but uses intricately woven, hidden rhythmic and rhyming schemes.

Paddy teaches creative thinking skills. His long-standing interest in the metaphysics and evolution of ideas has led him to develop his own models for the creative process, which he applies in his creative thinking and writing classes, speeches and philosophical debates.

Many of Paddy Gormley's projects have their own websites, often featuring
click-to-play audio and video recordings. Such resources include excerpts from
AWL readings, studio recordings, archive theatre footage and audio-visual teaching presentations.

Click below for Paddy's Exciting Writing website, which
features information about and links to about thirty of his projects.
