"Teaching Creative Writing" is an edited collection of twelve teaching-focussed essays written by international experts in the field, with a critical introduction to the subject by Graeme Harper.
Each chapter draws on key points about the nature of teaching and learning creative writing, and topics covered include: workshop versus. individual supervision; the relationship between creative and critical praxis; teaching techniques and learning styles; peer learning; genre specific problems and solutions; and the relationship between teaching creative writing and the creative writing industry.
The contributors cover each genre of creative writing, including prose fiction, poetry, screen writing, non-fiction, and writing for the stage, children, new media and radio.
Tightly focussed around typical course modules, innovative and lucidly written, this book will be the essential textbook for teachers of creative writing in higher education, especially those who have not taught the subject before and are in need of a practical guide.
