It is great fun when friends get together to perform three or four 10-minute plays. This is very informal "living room theater," so we perform script in hand--no memorizing lines. Props are minimal. Costumes come right out of your closet--unless you feel like doing more. Everybody acts. Anyone can choose to direct. Perhaps you will write your own 10-minute play for the group. This quick-read book is your complete guide. It explains how to find plays, how to cast your actors, and how to set up your "stage," whether in your home or in a larger space such as the community room of your local library. The book teaches non-actors how to act and never-tried-it directors how to direct. The book points you to many 10-minute plays and includes nine diverse and fully engaging scripts (also downloadable from the Internet) with which to get started.

Words’ Wonder: Beginners’ Guide to Literature is an attempt to introduce students to the wonder of words in literature. The beauty and extraordinariness of words used in literature may help increase students’ aesthetic and intellectual growth. Studying literature is not merely cognitive oriented but also transformative. By gaining knowledge about literature from a variety of culture across the world, students can grow their sense of becoming human beings so as to develop their global citizenship, tolerance and ethical responsibility. In Indonesian context, as in any parts of the world sometimes wrecked by prejudice and intolerance, good values from different literary traditions should be implanted in the young age as early as possible. Only then can people foster positive attitudes, put aside resentment and bigotry, remove anger and bitterness. The purpose of this guidebook is thus to make students aware of the joy, charm and fascination of reading literary works, while cultivating their artistic, affective and social aspects of life through the power of words.

This introductory creative writing text uses a unique, multi-genre approach to provide students with a broad-based knowledge of their craft, treating them as professional writers. Beginning by discussing elements common to all genres, this book underscores the importance of learning good writing habits before committing to a genre, encouraging writers to look beyond their genre expectations and learn from other forms. The book then devotes one chapter to each of the major literary genres: fiction, poetry, drama and creative nonfiction. These style-specific sections provide depth as they compare the different genres, furnishing students with a comprehensive understanding of creative writing as a discipline and fostering creativity. The discussion concludes with a chapter on digital media and an appendix on literary citizenship and publishing. With exercises at the end of each chapter, a glossary of literary terms, and a list of resources for further study, A Writer’s Craft is the ideal companion to an introductory creative writing class.
