Product Description


This book is rocket fuel for all aspiring writers. A dynamic, cogent and inspiring celebration of how languauge and imagination conjure stories - this is mouthwatering reading for anyone who relishes the English language. Absorb its wisdom and rejoice. Then write. -- Liz Jensen, author of eight novels including The Uninvited (2012) From Language to Creative Writing is for anyone who loves to read and write the English langauge. Teachers and students at sixth form, college and university will enjoy the deft, clear and jargon-free way it connects aspects of English that are usually seperated... Key concepts of language study inform a highly developed approach to creative writing... Beginning students will find the book unusually direct and helpful, while teachers and practitioners of language study and creative writing will develop their practice by example of the author's seamlessly integrated approach. -- John Hodgson, Research Officer, National Association for the Teaching of English, UK

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
... if you are taking the Open University Course A150, almost the entire text is included in the course book (Book 2) which you will get, so there is no point in an OU student buying this. If you are not taking that course, and are interested in the synergy between learning our language and how to be creative with it in a variety of contexts, then, and only then, this book is warmly recommended.
