This book explores narrative imagination and emotion as resources for learning critical meta-reflection. The author examines the learning trajectories of several students as they engage in learning to think critically through a new approach to creative writing, and details how learning through writing is linked to new discoursal identities which are trialled in the writing process. In doing so, she analyses the processes of expansion and change that result from the negotiations involved in learning through writing. This volume offers a completely new approach to creative writing, including useful practical advice as well as a solid theoretical base. It is sure to appeal to students of creative writing and discourse analysis as well as applied linguistics and language as identity.

Creative writing is a responsive human activity. We use it to respond to the world, to our feelings, to ideas, to observations, to other people, to historical and cultural events, and to the wonders created in our imaginations. This book shows how we go about doing this responding. Contributors discuss practice-led research in creative writing. They look at the ways a writer can use language or employ genre and consider how we each define themes and subjects and use writing techniques to explore to these themes and subjects. In examining creative writing teaching, the contributions gathered here suggest that teaching can be more responsive, more engaged with student interests, and more successful. This book shows that exploring creative writing, through a variety of means, can produce inventive, energetic results that can improve our own creative writing, as well as substantially contribute to our critical understanding of creative writing.

This book offers an in-depth study on the poetics of creative writing as a subject in the dramatically changing context of practice as research, taking into account the importance of the subjectivity of the writer as researcher. It explores creative writing and theory while offering critical antecedents, theoretical directions and creative interchanges. The book narrows the focus on psychoanalysis, particularly with regard to Lacan and creative practice, and demonstrates that creative writing is research in its own right. The poetics at stake neither denotes the study or the techniques of poetry, but rather the means by which writers formulate and discuss attitudes to their work.
