Dr Marilyn Fryer

Marilyn is a Director of the Creativity Centre UK Ltd, and Chief Executive of the Creativity Centre Educational Trust - a voluntary role. A chartered psychologist and author, her work has been presented and published internationally.

Marilyn enjoys talking about creativity education in the UK. This was the theme of her keynote presentations at the Annual Meeting of the Japanese Association of Educational Psychology in Shizuoka, Japan; the Torrance Lecture Series, Athens, Georgia; and the International Forum on Creativity at the opening of the Nobel Prize Centennial Exhibition in Kuala Lumpur where she was also a panel member for Forging the Creative Agenda for Malaysia. Marilyn has also undertaken consultancy on the development of creativity for various government bodies in the UK and overseas.

Before co-founding the Creativity Centre with Caroline, Marilyn spent much of her career in the university sector undertaking research and teaching creativity education, developmental and cognitive psychology. At Leeds Metropolitan University, where she was Reader in Psychology, she set up the cross-university Centre for Innovation and Creativity (CIC) as well as devising and delivering a series of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in applied creativity, supervising research and undertaking her own research into creativity in education.

One of the things Marilyn most enjoys is meeting people from all over the world and collaborating with them to create publications and learning resources in the area of creativity and human development, which is one reason why she enjoys being an editor of this journal.

The Little Red Yellow Black Book Third Edition

If you've found Dr Sandy O'Sullivan's article, Avoiding the Zero-sum Game, thought-provoking and want to know more about Australia's rich indigenous cultures, then you might be interested in 'The Little Red Yellow Black Book: an Introduction to Indigenous Australia'. This popular book, written from an Indigenous perspective, is both accessible and informative. There are sections on history, culture, sport, the arts, education, employment, governance, community participation, resistance, reconciliation and much more. It is suitable for both general interest and education. Of particular interest to tourists and other visitors to Australia, there is also a section on travelling respectfully on Indigenous land, and Indigenous festivals and tours. I strongly recommend this book.

Never standing still

We’ve received some fantastic material for our current theme, Creativity around the World, from all over the world, which we’re constantly uploading. But we don’t intend to stand still, so we’re now inviting you to submit material for our third theme, the Development of Creativity. Once again we’ve already received some great stuff, but there’s still an opportunity to submit work for consideration. We welcome academic papers, features, news items, opinion pieces and artwork so, if you’re interested, please have a look at the author guidelines and then contact us to let us know what you have in mind.

We are delighted to introduce Diane Kessenich, Founder Member of Creativity & Human Development and New York publisher who totally shares our creative vision for the journal and the work of our charity, CCET. Diane has many creative achievements. These include the development of a stand-alone Curriculum Learning Management System (Read & Click & Learn) which can be accessed globally. Much earlier, she published the annual Creativity's Global Correspondents, edited by Morris I Stein, Emeritus Professor (Psychology) New York University – a means of enabling creativity researchers and others all over the world to easily share what was happening in their countries in the area of creativity. We value her enthusiasm, her wisdom and her support and we warmly welcome her.

Call for papers, features and other material

We've received some fascinating material which we'll be using to expand Creativity Exploded over the next few weeks and after that, we'll start uploading material on our second theme which focuses on Creativity in Different Cultures and Countries and how this translates into initiatives, policies or other activities. We've already accepted some really interesting copy from all over the world, but we want to see even more countries and cultural groups represented. So if you have an idea for an article, feature or other material on this theme, please get in touch as soon as possible.

‘The journal looks terrific and makes a great change from many of the journals that you see these days.’

We've been delighted by the many kind comments we've received about this journal since its launch a few weeks ago. We really appreciate the enthusiasm and support of everyone who has responded. So it does look as if we are on the right track and that so far we have got the mix of popular and academic material on the site about right.

'Articles are very interesting, especially fascinating the approach of covering so many research and application fields of creativity.’

But this is just the beginning – we've got lots of ideas for the future. We'd also really like to hear from you about what else you'd like to see featured and the topics you'd like to see addressed. So please let us know! You can use comments below, or send us a message. Don't forget to sign up for our Facebook page and Twitter feed to see all the latest updates on the site.
