THE WRITER'S RESPONSE teaches students not only the basics of paragraph and essay writing—unity, coherence, and support—but also the basics of academic writing, making it a complete source for students preparing for higher-level work. Through a variety of exercises and extensive readings, the text teaches students to read carefully and summarize accurately, to recognize and respond to specific points in the material they have read, to synthesize ideas from several reading selections, and to evaluate and argue about the ideas they have found in their reading material. Although the authors' focus is on writing about reading, they also encourage students to use their personal experiences to develop and support their ideas. This combination results in a text that not only imparts the fundamentals of college-level writing, but also helps each student find his or her own voice—and discover that they do, indeed, have something to say.

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.
