Power and Identity in the Creative Writing Classroom, edited by Anna Leahy, serves as a fine example of this expanding, improving conversation on the teaching of creative writing. This book is generative, ranging and substantial. It is a book I wish I had read before I taught my first creative writing workshop. This is an impressive collection. Among other issues, The Authority Project addresses power dynamics in the classroom, assumptions about the roles of students and teachers in creative writing, gendering in creative writing, and how best to teach students in this complicated classroom space. To its credit, the collection provides no prescriptions. Authority, as all teachers know, is a central dynamic in the classroom, and this collection should be of use to creative writing teachers and others who want to learn more about it.(Eric Burger, Pedagogy 7:1)

The essays in Power and Identity in the Creative Writing Classroom respond to an AWP pedagogy panel addressing the confusion and questions writers face who "though we may have been hired because we write, are paid to teach" (ix). The aim of the collection is to present possible pedagogical approaches to creative writing. The essays are organized in four sections: understanding the larger influences (referring to the ideas of creative writing students bring into the classroom); the teacher's place, voice, and style; course design; and, in the classroom (anecdotes about specific teaching experiences). While the essays are arranged under these headings, each offers a very specific, individual voice and argument for an approach to creative writing.
