Last month we announced that we’d be publishing the paperback edition of Teaching Creative Writing: Practical Approaches, edited by Elaine Walker, on 1 June. Today’s update is a mixture of good news and bad.
The good news is that in North America and Australasia, where our books are currently printed by Lightning Source, the paperback is now published.
The bad news is that in the UK and Europe, the printer we use — namely MPG Biddles — has recently gone into administration. This has delayed the publication of the paperback while we transfer our custom to an alternative supplier. We expect to have paperback copies printed by another UK printer later this month.
The title will remain available as a hardback and 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.
