What more could you want? Jeremy Fisher on Creative Writing

Chatterjee coverAnthony Haynes writes: The latest edition (Vol. 17, no. 2) of Text, the open access journal on creative writing, includes a review by Jeremy Fisher (University of New England) of our publication, Creative writing: writers on writing (ed. Amal Chatterjee).

The review begins:

“What a good idea, I thought when I first received my copy of Creative Writing: Writers on Writing. Amal Chatterjee has collected creative works from himself and seven other writers, Colm Breathnach, Fred D’Aguiar, Jane Draycott, Philip Gross, Kathryn Heyman, Sabyn Javeri and Emily Raboteau, and then asked each writer to pen a reflective piece about the creative works. The original literary works cover poetry, fiction and translation. The writers come from Australia, India, Ireland, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Most of the material is written in English, though Colm Breathnach’s poems are presented in Gaelic as well as English.”

And concludes: “This book is not only a good idea, it is a good read, and also very useful for teaching. What more could you want?”
