Approaches to Writing

Series editors: Graeme Harper

A new agenda-setting series of books that will provide students with integrated creative and critical approaches to creative writing. These highly accessible books will enable students to develop both practical writing skills and a greater critical awareness of creative possibilities. Each title will negotiate the creative-critical crossover, defining Creative Writing criticism and how it differs from that of Literary and Cultural Studies, as well as forming key links between creative practice and critical understanding. Each title in the series will take a similar form based on linking creative practice with ways of increasing critical awareness of creative practice and of its results. In the 'Foundations' section of each book, the reader will be introduced to both creative and critical texts, and ideas, which occupy the more 'canonical' aspects of creative practice and critical understanding of that practice (as per the genre being discussed). In 'Speculations' the reader will be exposed to other possibilities, alternative/comparative ways of seeing, alternative/comparative ways of writing, and ways of contextualizing both practice and critical understanding. Each section will conclude with a brief 'key points' summary and then offer a selection of exercises which highlight the creative/critical discussions. Books in the series will: · Help students develop a critical awareness about their own work and the work of others · Encourage students to follow up and explore new ideas about writing · Introduce critical ideas and theorists in way which is easily understandable and opens up creative possibilities · Offer a bridge between creative and critical awareness in fiction · Provide technical and practical advice within a critically informed framework
