"Creative writing pedagogy is enjoying a rapid expansion - college courses have rocketed from four courses in 1999 to 38 in the US, UK and Canada in 2016. Investigative Creative Writing builds on teaching theories of established writers and scholars as well as current innovators in the field. In laying out the theoretical foundation for an experiential, discovery-based learning approach, the book is primarily aimed at those who teach at college/tertiary level. It will also be useful for teachers and students practicing the craft of writing in related fields like English, writing, linguistics, communications, composition and rhetoric and education.Investigative Creative Writing can be envisioned as a practical tool for overcoming hurdles that impede writers from venturing into unknown territory where discoveries take place. In other words, beyond assisting in developing and honing more cutting-edge creative writing programs, this guidebook will be extremely helpful for curious intellects in getting to the meat of the matter, generating narratives, identifying arguments, fleshing out character traits, discovering direction for plots, and developing a host of other skills that foster and embolden a literal and literary freedom of the imagination. Examples of student assignments are included in the text as well as instructions for assignments from past classes which are intended for instructors to adjust according to their needs"--
