Are you beginning a creative writing course? Or thinking about taking one? Doing Creative Writing is the ideal guide to what you should expect, what will be expected of you and how you can get the most from your course. It clearly and concisely outlines: the contexts for creative writing courses, explaining where the subject has come from and why that matters the content, structure and delivery of the courses, helping you to understand how your course will be shaped, what you will be asked to do and why the skills you will develop, from self-discipline and time management through to the organization of ideas, 'reading as a writer' and editing possibilities beyond the course, showing how you continue to benefit from what you've learned. Drawing on years of teaching and writing experience, as well as interviews with a wide range of students, Steve May provides all the background, advice and encouragement you need to embark on a creative writing course with complete confidence and to get maximum benefit from every writing session.

All writers are familiar with terms like plot, suspense, conflict and character. They may be less familiar with intertextuality, anachrony, and fabula, and they may be even less confident in achieving the effects these terms refer to. This book defines fictional techniques and guides the potential writer in their use. It may spark off ideas for stories and novels and provide first-aid for failing stories. A story's ending may come as a surprise to the reader, suspense may have the reader on the edge of the seat, and conflict may lead to unbearable excitement. It is the job of the writer to create these effects and this book illustrates how it is done. The book is for students doing creative writing in higher education, at "A" level, and it will be essential reading for anyone interested in writing fiction. Contents: * Definitions of over 200 terms and techniques to do with fiction writing * How to achieve fictional effects * Literary examples of the techniques described Characteristics of genre as well as literary fiction * Basic but essential techniques such as writing dialogue and using figures of speech * Definitions of major terms used in publishing

What is Creative Writing? Millions of people do it, but how do we do it, really? What evidence of its human undertaking does Creative Writing produce? How do we explore Creative Writing, as both an art form and a mode of communication? How do we come to understand Creative Writing, creatively and critically? Posing questions about the nature of Creative Writing, On Creative Writing asks us to consider what Creative Writing actually is, and in doing so encourages us to reflect on how our knowledge of Creative Writing can be increased. Emphasizing Creative Writing as an act and actions, On Creative Writing considers what lies at the core of the activity called Creative Writing.
