Often witty, always insightful, and eminently practical, the essays contribute wonderfully to the literature on writing and its pedagogies. If you're a writer, a teacher of writing or a writing student, buy this book!"
Associate Professor Jen Webb, Co-editor, TEXT: the Journal of the Australian Association of Writing.
The brilliance of this book is in the way it tackles the subject through such a diversity of creative voices. It makes clear why creative writing properly belongs at the very heart of our universities but will never be 'institutionalized'. The book should be an invaluable resource not only for those working in higher education but for anyone serious in exploring their own creative lives."
Paul Munden, Director, National Association of Writers in Education.
'I think Graeme Harper's choice is excellent. I have no argument with the choice or weighting of the chapters, nor with the reputation or weight of the contributors.' David Morley, University of Warwick
'The two proposed volumes look as though they would be exceedingly useful to lecturers. More established teachers too, who may not have theorised their practice and who may feel the need for professional development, will find much to interest them. There is another, less elevated, need: that of lecturers who are thrown in at the deep end... and are desperate for an ordered series of exercises.' Robert Sheppard, Edge Hill
'All or most creative writing textbooks currently on the market are not addressed to the academic audience and context. Most are aimed at the individual writer experimenting alone... There is as yet very little for tutors and students in HE courses, to be read in the context of teaching and learning on these courses.' Richard Kerridge, Bath Spa University College.
"Teaching Creative Writing" is an edited collection of twelve teaching-focussed essays written by international experts in the field, with a critical introduction to the subject by Graeme Harper. Each chapter draws on key points about the nature of teaching and learning creative writing, and topics covered include: workshop versus. individual supervision; the relationship between creative and critical praxis; teaching techniques and learning styles; peer learning; genre specific problems and solutions; and the relationship between teaching creative writing and the creative writing industry. The contributors cover each genre of creative writing, including prose fiction, poetry, screen writing, non-fiction, and writing for the stage, children, new media and radio. Tightly focussed around typical course modules, innovative and lucidly written, this book will be the essential textbook for teachers of creative writing in higher education, especially those who have not taught the subject before and are in need of a practical guide.See all Product description

Told from the point of view of an experienced teacher speaking to a novice, this book is a fantastic way to explore the ways that writing, reading, and theory connect to each other.

I will be starting a writing course for high school students. I gave this book a 3 stars rating because it is very helpful but not easy to quickly use. It contains essays on various genres and strategies but it is incomplete on class activities. Some chapters have activities, others don't. However, it does bring up some important points that teachers need to consider as they plan and teach their course. The essays are a bit overwhelming if you are just beginning the planning of your course; however, once you have set up your course you will probably want to read this to refine your plan.
