Illuminating African narratives for readers both inside and outside the continent. A Nigerian immigrant to Senegal explores the increasing influence of China across the region, a Kenyan student activist writes of exile in Kampala, a Liberian scientist shares her diary of the Ebola crisis, a Nigerian journalist travels to the north to meet a community at risk, a Kenyan author travels to Senegal to interview a gay rights activist, and a South African writer recounts a tale of family discord and murder in a remote seaside town. In a collection that ranges from travel writing and memoir to reportage and meditative essays, editor Ellah Wakatama Allfrey has brought together some of the most talented writers of creative nonfiction from across Africa.

Pulitzer Prize–winning author James A. Michener has written about everything from the pristine islands of the South Pacific and the endless wilds of Africa to Spanish bullfighters, American revolutionaries, and pirates of the Caribbean. Now Michener turns to his favorite and most personal subject: the written word. Reproducing pages from his own handwritten rough drafts and working manuscripts, Michener walks the reader through a step-by-step guide to the entire process of writing, editing, revising, and publishing. Addressing challenges specific to both fiction and nonfiction, all the while providing thoughtful and useful solutions, James A. Michener’s Writer’s Handbook is an invaluable resource for book lovers, editors, and, of course, writers—aspiring and accomplished alike. Praise for James A. Michener “A master storyteller . . . Michener, by any standards, is a phenomenon.”—The Wall Street Journal “Sentence for sentence, writing’s fastest attention grabber.”—The New York Times “Michener has become an institution in America, ranking somewhere between Disneyland and the Library of Congress. You learn a lot from him.”—Chicago Tribune “While he fascinates and engrosses, Michener also educates.”—Los Angeles Times

Using the presentation of transgendered (female to male) characters by women writers as a jumping off point, Pernal (women's literature and creative writing, Teikyo-Post U.) explores how Toni Morrison, Rose Tremain, Maya Angelou, and other women writers confront issues of marginality in consciously ideological and personal ways. Although the position of transgendered people is the starting point the analysis is expanded to encompass wider issues of gender, race, and class. The entire effort is geared towards promoting an understanding of feminism as a focal point in the battle against all oppression. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Creative Manoeuvres is a collection of new writings on a topic of enduring interest: the role of creative practice in the formation of knowledge. The contributors to this collection are primarily creative writers, working in poetry, fiction, nonfiction and ethnography. Many include the visual or performing arts within their practice; and all are academics as well as creative writers. Their chapters move the study of creative writing beyond subjective accounts of ‘how I write’ towards broader issues of how knowledge is addressed by, or incorporated into, or embodied in, art. Each chapter also does double duty as a case study on approaches to creative and research work, both describing and critically exploring the strategies, or ‘creative manoeuvres’, these writers have adopted to advance their practice in both creative and critical domains. In this way, the book not only exemplifies moves in the contemporary academy to understand better the value creative practice can offer to the university, but also provides a rich and engaging set of narratives about ways of being, ways of making and ways of coming to know. In both practical and theoretical modes, it contributes to the ongoing questions about creativity and/versus scholarship that have been debated over recent decades.

Craft matters. Point of view matters-its controlling effect often overlooked in the study of authors' rhetorical choices. This book showcases creative writing from students in the University of Vermont Honors College course, Crafting Point of View, that evolved through experimentation. These writers tackled stylistic imitations of novelists, memoirists, and poets who chose unconventional points of view in their prosaic and poetic story telling: the dialect and direct-address of Celie's letters to God in Alice Walker's The Color Purple; the masterful and inventive manipulation of multiple points of view, sometimes within the same chapter or paragraph, in Lydia Davis's Collected Stories-predominantly "Break It Down"-and Abigail Thomas's Safekeeping; the surreal seemingness of "How to Tell a True War Story" in Tim O'Brien's metafictional The Things They Carried; the ways for means that poets like Maya Angelou, Donald Hall, and Jane Kenyon shift points of view, sometimes to alter the lens on pain; and the utilization of that "say you are...," "imagine this," all-inclusive assumedness of the second-person in Jay McInernay's Bright Lights, Big City and Mark Richard's House of Prayer No. 2. In the explorations that follow each story, essay, poem, or media message, student reflections on the crafting process will enlighten readers about the power and purpose of this often-undervalued element of style in writing: point of view.
