Visions Season - Visualising

Writers work by enabling the reader to visualise a space, a scene, an object, a character, a feeling, an action. The writers in this season’s programme are all wonderfully visionary, imaginatively speculative and sumptuous for their ability to give us visions via a written and sounded language.
