This review is from: The Cambridge Introduction to Creative Writing (Cambridge Introductions to Literature) (Paperback)
What an interesting and stimulating book! As a teacher and would-be writer I found this book both challenging and delightful. The exercises are practical and thought-provoking. The ideas expressed made me think about my own practices with renewed vigour. It is thorough and lively but unlike some guides to writing, it also provides academic frameworks for writing which give the endeavour depth and intellectual rigour. I really enjoyed the book which made me re-enter the classroom with more creative heart and mind. I also loved Peter Blegvad's illustrations. The title makes the book sound too routine when really it is a labour of love by one of our most esteemed writers and teachers.
