Review

This is a timely and perceptive guide to the practice, pedagogy, and prospects for one of the fastest growing areas in English studies. For the range and richness of its contributions covering the craft of composition from every imaginable angle, and for the variety and vibrancy of its engagement with literary art as a public form, this volume will become a touchstone for all who value creative writing as an engaging art, and an art of engagement. -- Professor Willy Maley, University of Glasgow It's an invaluable guide for anyone thinking of teaching creative writing, at any level -- I really wish it had been available years ago... It's really nice to come across a book that's so thoughtfully organised, so thorough, entertaining and just plain useful. -- Catherine Smith The New Writer This is a timely and perceptive guide to the practice, pedagogy, and prospects for one of the fastest growing areas in English studies.
