This stimulating workbook is aimed at committed writers and students of Creative Writing who want to engage with ideas about writing and develop their craft and practice. Drawing on the expertise of a range of professional and award-winning contributors, the focus is on writing as 'process', moving from practical guidance on 'form and style' through to using themes such as 'body' or 'house' as a creative springboard. Including specially designed writing exercises and illustrative extracts, this innovative guide will inspire and challenge. It is an essential resource for anyone who wishes to master the art and practice of Creative Writing and galvanise their talent to professional and publication level.
