Product description


Examines how you can be a maker of great stories for a range of forms and media and why stories are so important to us - and whether you can ever write anything new. This title is intended for teachers, students and practitioners of creative writing.

From the Publisher

This book is an essential read for any budding writer or creative writing tutor. It doesn't try to find a formula for writing, but invites practising writers, with years of experience, to think about what makes a great story. Whether you are a poet, a scriptwriter,a journalist, a novelist,an oral story teller or a stand-up comic, this book will offer insights into your craft. It even suggests you can write great essays by thinking about them as stories.
The centrality of story runs across forms and genres, so what's said here about joke telling could be applied to novel writing, what's written about immersion reporting might be applied to playwriting, what's said about storytelling has been applied to essay writing.
Join these writers in a journey through their own experience and practice. Find out what different genres and forms have in common.
Then dive in and make your own story.
