RETHINKING CREATIVE WRITING “Thoroughly researched, beautifully written, and [an] altogether important book” • Erika Dreifus in Practicing Writing In this passionate, iconoclastic, survey of Creative Writing as an academic discipline, Stephanie Vanderslice provides a provocative critique of existing practice. She challenges enduring myths surrounding creative writing – not least, that writers learn most from workshops. Through case studies of best practice from America and elsewhere, Vanderslice provides a vision of change, showing how undergraduate and postgraduate programs can be reformed to re-engage with contemporary culture. Stephanie Vandersliceis Associate Professor of Writing, University of Central Arkansas and co-editor of Can It Really Be Taught?: Resisting Lore in Creative Writing Pedagogy (Heinemann).

TEACHING CREATIVE WRITING “ This collection of writing exercises, directed at people who are new to the teaching of writing, or keen to reinvigorate their practice, has immensely practical potential.” • Australasian Association of Writing Programs Teaching Creative Writing: Practical Approaches is designed to showcase proven approaches developed by practitioners in the ever-growing community of writers in higher education. Aimed at enabling those who teach the subject to review, borrow, and adapt ideas, the emphasis throughout is on diversity: the international team of contributors covers a variety of forms and genres. These include traditional and innovative components of creative writing courses. Elaine Walker teaches Creative Writing for the University of Wales, Bangor, and the Open University. Her publications include a novel, The Horses (Cinnamon Press), non-fiction, Horse (Reaktion Books and Kalima Press), and poetry (Roundyhouse, Caught in the Net). She has edited texts by William Cavendish (Long Riders’ Guild Press) and Margaret Cavendish (Serendipity). Publication date: 2012. Place of publication: Ely (UK).

CREATIVE WRITING Creative Writing: Writers on Writing brings together eight original literary works by eight authors. Each work is accompanied by a reflective commentary written by its author. In addition to the literary interest of the works themselves and of the authors’ commentaries, the book serves a valuable pedagogic purpose. Many creative writing courses in higher education require students to write commentaries to accompany their pieces of creative writing – yet students often find this requirement challenging. Similarly, tutors sometimes find the writing of commentaries challenging to teach. The commentaries in Creative Writing:Writers on Writing are designed to provide models for discussion and analysis. Creative Writing:Writers on Writing thus combines literary appeal with critical insight and academic support. AmalChatterjeeis the author of Across the Lakes (a novel published by Phoenix House and Penguin India) and Representations of India 1740-1840 (Macmillan and St Martin’s Press). He teaches fiction on the M St course at the University of Oxford and on courses in Amsterdam and Zurich. Publication date: 2012. Place of publication: Ely (UK).
