Out now – a new book which explores creative writing and its various relationships to education through a number of short, evocative chapters written by key players in the field. At times controversial, it talks about issues, ideas and practices related to creative writing in and around education, with a focus on higher education.
Rob Pope (Emeritus Professor, Oxford Brookes University), who knows a lot about these things, says that “This is a tremendously stimulating and timely book. Global in scope yet sensitive to local conditions, this is a collection that will help recast the future of Creative Writing in Education at large. Teeming with expert dialogues and punctuated by synoptic commentaries, the volume is unusual in spanning school, college and university, and in exploring the relations between Creative Writing, research and teaching. I thought I had thought a lot about these things. It makes me think again – afresh.”
