Creative Writing Studies PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Creative Writing Studies free pdf The Chapters in this book range across all three areas of its subtitle practice, research and pedagogy - testifying to the integrated nature of creative writing as a university discipline. Writers from the USA, the UK and Australia concentrate on the most critical issues facing this popular, fast-developing and sometimes embattled area of study: practice-led research in creative writing- the nature of higher degrees- the place of critical/theoretical discourse in the discipline- the best teaching methods at undergraduate and postgraduate levels- and the challenge of creative writers who are also university teachers. These exciting essays, thus, chart creative writing's evolution as a site of knowledge in the contemporary university.
