Editorial Reviews

Review

A remarkable new collection of essays about the theory, practice, design, and reinvention of peer-review components in writing-courses. The expertise and range of experience represented by the contributors is astonishing. This is a bountiful offering indeed. --Hans Ostrom, editor, of Colors of a Different Horse: Re-Thinking Creative Writing Theory and Pedagogy

By exploring the workshop from within as well as without, and by challenging the notion that such a staid enterprise as the workshop cannot be reified for emerging writers and teachers, this collection bravely takes its place among its clear predecessors - namely Moxley's Creative Writing in America and Bishop and Ostrom's Colors of a Different Horse - in refusing to quietly accept the simple notions that writing instruction is an organic enterprise, and that writers are (or should be) meekly acculturated to the practices and values of the writing workshop as `fine, I [guess],' to paraphrase one of the many astute contributors here. --Kelly Ritter, University of North Carolina-Greensboro

This collection offers writing practitioners new and insightful approaches to their teaching and is an important and timely resource with which to reflect on course development, teaching and evaluation. --Catherine Cole, RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia

Does the Writing Workshop Still Work? is alert to the newest media in the creative arts, while offering a defense and investigation of the best practices of the creative writing workshop. A valuable resource to all teachers who view creative writing pedagogy as an academic discipline and humanistic exploration. --Shirley Geok-lin Lim, University of California, Santa Barbara; author of Among the White Moon Faces.
