Creative writers studying, researching and teaching in universities are facing deep unsettling change, as are universities themselves and the economies in which they are embedded. Writers as individuals know about the creative value of uncertainty, experiment, bold thinking and embracing contradictions; this provocative collection points to ways of doing this for the discipline as a whole. With perspectives from the US, the UK and Australia, this is globalized thinking in the good sense not homogenized but expanded by considering their deep differences as well as their shared interests. Here is an array of possibilities by which creative writing may not simply survive but positively evolve. --Philip Gross, Glamorgan University, UK
More than any other book currently available, Key Issues in Creative Writing maps out the possibilities and problems that confront creative writing in the academy in the early decades of the twenty-first century. Refusing to isolate creative writing from the complex and turbulent worlds it must inhabit, the contributors to this volume provide an absolutely indispensable overview of the issues facing the field. If you are interested in the future of creative writing as an academic enterprise, you simply must read this book. --Timothy Mayers, Millersville University of Pennsylvania, USA
