Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This will make a splendid resource: comprehensive, practical and thorough. I can see it being useful, not just to teachers in schools but to anyone involved in creative writing at any level. I think that using 'real writers' makes the book not just interesting in itself but also gives it an authentic feel and practical appeal. Letting the writers themselves say "this is how I really work, this is what I really do" makes it far more relevant than the usual lists of advice in "How to" books.' - Celia Rees

'I'm extremely impressed by Creating Writers and I refer to it and recommend it during school visits and talks. It really explores its subject, and offers an important, beautifully researched and well-expressed alternative to shallow, quick-fix approaches to creative writing.' - David Almond
