Description

A structured course in creative writing providing opportunity for users to work through exercises individually. This book is based on the belief that the best writing comes not out of the blue but from a context in which the writer can feel involved, and that writing needs as much practical emphasis as a craft as does woodwork, art or music. To aid involvement each chapter contains an initial situation to provide a context which is explored and broken down in a workshop fashion, the practices learned being then applied to a variety of similar situations. The contexts themselves cover a range of writing opportunities and functions - factual and analytic, descriptive and imaginative, dramatic and narrative - exploring the particular needs and challenges of each. They are also progressive and from chapter to chapter there is a development to more complex situations and styles.show more
