New publication: Teaching Creative Writing

Teaching Creative Writing: Practical Approaches, edited by Elaine Walker, was the second title in  our Creative Writing Studies series when it was published in hardback.

Now we will be publishing this title in paperback on 1 June 2013. The publication will remain available as an e-book too (in ePub and PDF editions).


Teaching Creative Writing is designed to showcase practical 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.

Contributions from an international team of writers cover a variety of forms and genres and include traditional and innovative components of creative writing courses.
