“Brave, serious, passionate, entertaining. . .” Dr. Steve May, Head of Department, Creative Writing, Bath Spa Univeristy and author of Doing Creative Writing
In this passionate, iconoclastic, survey of Creative Writing as an academic discipline, Stephanie Vanderslice provides a provocative critique of existing practice. She challenges enduring myths surrounding creative writing – not least, that writers learn most from workshops. Through case studies of best practice from America and elsewhere, Vanderslice provides a vision of change, showing how undergraduate and postgraduate programs can be reformed to re-engage with contemporary culture.
