Creative writing guide

I’m very pleased to be one of the contributors to an excellent new creative writing guide aimed at writers and tutors who teach the subject in higher education.

Teaching Creative Writing, edited by Elaine Walker, is the second title in the Creative Writing Studies series by the Professional & Higher Partnership, based in Cambridgeshire. It is published on June 30th as as an e-book and in print as a hardback.

The book showcases practical approaches, with 50 lessons developed by published writers from around the world and designed for fellow writers and tutors on university creative writing courses to borrow and adapt the ideas in their own teaching.

The contributions cover a variety of teaching approaches, both traditional and innovative, and a wide range of genres and forms – my own session is based on travel writing, for example. I’m especially pleased to be included alongside Paul “Oz” Hardwick and Amina Alyal, two of my colleagues from the English undergraduate programme at Leeds Trinity University College.
