This book explores the effectiveness of the workshop in the Creative Writing classroom, and looks beyond the question of whether or not the workshop works to address the issue of what an altered pedagogical model might look like. In visualising what else is possible in the workshop space, the sixteen chapters collected in ‘Does the Writing Workshop Still Work?’ cover a range of theoretical and pedagogical topics and explore the inner workings and conflicts of the workshop model. The needs of a growing and diverse student population are central to the chapter authors’ consideration of non-normative pedagogies. The book is a must-read for all teachers of Creative Writing, as well as for researchers in Creative Writing Studies.

Key Issues in Creative Writing explores a range of important issues that inform the practice and understanding of creative writing. The collection considers creative writing learning and teaching as well as creative writing research. Contributors target debates that arise because of the nature of creative writing. These experts – from the UK, USA and Australia – specifically examine creative writing as a subject in universities and colleges and discuss both the creative knowledge and the critical understanding informing the subject and its future. Finally, this volume suggests ways in which addressing current issues will produce significant disciplinary knowledge that will contribute to the success of creative writing in current and future academic environments.

This book advances creative writing studies as a developing field of inquiry, scholarship, and research. It discusses the practice of creative writing studies, the establishment of a body of professional knowledge, and the goals and future direction of the discipline within the academy. This book also traces the development of creative writing studies; noting that as the new discipline matures—as it refers to evidence of its own research methodology and collective data, and locates its authority in its own scholarship—creative writing studies will bring even more meaning to the academy, its profession, and its student body.

The Writing Workshop Note Book

While this book does focus on the workshop experience, it is impossible to truly explore the workshop without dealing with the heart that sustains the workshop's brain; the act of creation.

The Writing Workshop Note Book is devoted to making, remaking, and remarking on writing. Animated by a concern about how we relate to our own and others' writing and by a desire to have a felicitous effect on the reader's experience with writing and critiquing? and supported by his experience from decades of leading writing workshops? Ziegler has the following goals for this book;1) It will be useful if you are taking (or thinking of taking) a writing workshop.2) It will benefit workshop teachers.3) It will be a helpful companion to a solitary writer, who can be thought of as a ''workshop of one.''4) It will be pleasant to read! While this book does focus on the workshop experience, it is impossible to truly explore the workshop without dealing with the heart that sustains the workshop's brain; the act of creation. Thus, Part One is concerned with the work that leads to the drafts on the workshop table, and Part Two emphasizes what happens around the table while these drafts are critiqued. The two Parts are not discrete; the issues in Part One often occupy workshop discussion. Teachers of writing do not open up cans of lectures; pedagogy in workshops gets doled out in brief exegeses, organized opportunistically as the work comes across the table. Ziegler replicates this process by arranging the material into notes, which the reader can absorb sequentially or alight on as he flips through the pages.

In a clear and lively style, with rich literary references from classic and contemporary fiction, Novakovich teaches you how to: uncover ideas worth writing about; evoke a vivid sense of place and time; invent believable characters for your fiction; support your story with strong organization and structure; tell your story from the best viewpoint; direct your dramatic action; open and close with power and grace; choose expressive details; write with a commanding narrative voice; and transform your first draft into finished, polished fiction. At the end of each chapter, a dozen or more unique writing exercises (each with a clear "objective statement" to focus your efforts) will help you put what you learn into action, while exploring new ideas, approaches and genres. After you complete each exercise, "check" questions will help you review what you've done - so that you may revise or rewrite. Encouraging real improvement over negative self-criticism, Novakovich helps you gain a more productive sense of where you can write one more line that will add life to what you already have down - or where you can delete a line that may obscure your readers' view. He helps you develop day-to-day self-discipline. And perhaps most important, he respects and encourages your development of personal style. "I will give you a lot of advice", he says, "but you need not take it". As a writer, Novakovich knows that the strongest fiction emerges from your own choices and directions. Fiction Writer's Workshop gives you clear, firsthand understanding of the elements of fiction . . . so you can make more informed choices and your fiction more successful.

Tracing the evolution of the writer's workshop, Wilbers depicts it as having roots in the midwestern regionalist literary movement of the late nineteenth century and in the university's writer's clubs of the same period. The quirky personalities of the individuals who contributed to its growth are revealed as also the pros and cons of students "learning" to write in an academic situation.
