'No writer-teacher is better qualified than David Morley to lift the veils on the discipline of Creative Writing. He writes with all his feelings and a richness of metaphor that is beguiling for the general reader, the general writer, and the teacher. The exercises are inspired, growing out of the author's profound understanding of the inviolable connection between good writing and good and various reading. This book will be an inspiration and tool for teachers and writers who, like Morley, understand that the development of writing involves acquiring skills, and that inborn genius benefits from training and understanding.' Professor Michael Schmidt, University of Glasgow
Accessible, entertaining and groundbreaking, The Cambridge Introduction to Creative Writing is not only useful textbook for students and teachers of writing, but also an entertaining and inspiring read in its own right. Aspiring authors and teachers of writing will find much to discover and enjoy.See all Product description

It is challenging to read because there is so much to take in, I would advise reading only one chapter at a time. I would also advise to underline parts that really speak to you because you will want to re-read them for inspiration when you are finished.
It is both practical and inspiring, I had a notion of creative writing before I read this book but it made it a reality. By the time you have finished reading it you will realise that all there is left to do is to write.
It's stimulating stuff (including the humorous illustrations) and my copy is riddled with asterisks and underlinings of various passages. I return to it again and again while munching breakfast to kick-start my writing for the day.
The only other guide an author needs is the latest edition of the Writer's Handbook.
