The Creative Writing Handbook, Paperback


This revised and updated edition includes chapters on writing for stage and radio and on writing screenplays for film and television.

Written by professional writers and tutors, it covers all aspects of the writing process, from drafting first thoughts to shaping them into polished and publishable work.

All major areas of writing are explored, from screen writing to short fiction, from autobiography to experimental prose.

The handbook offers new and experienced writers a range of creative ideas, advice and open-ended tasks for exploring experience, mastering technique and thereby releasing the full potential of the imagination.

As most taught courses in creative writing are in workshop form, each chapter includes ideas on how to run group sessions and offers suggestions for developing writing beyond the workshop.
