What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

On all these subjects Wandor has important (and controversial) things to say.' - Professor Ben Knights, Director, English Subject Centre

'The book will be the definitive text about the history of Creative Writing teaching and its development in the UK for some time to come.' - English Subject Centre Newsletter.

'A thorough and detailed history of the multiple ways in which creative writing developed as a university discipline.'
