This book ... describes how universal writing problems have been dealt with by experienced writers, and it explains how the mistakes commonly made by novice writers can be avoided. The book is organized to be as practical as possible. It outlines the general principles of writing and then moves on to specific problems that writers encounter. Chapters 1-4 discuss the fundamental elements in a piece of creative writing-theme, setting, characters, and plot. Chapters 5-11 deal with the basic techniques for handling point of view, tone, description, dialogue, time, and imagery. Chapters 12 and 13 go over the mechanics of manuscript preparation and present a brief review of grammar, punctuation, and spelling. Finally, Chapter 14 looks at writing as a career and offers suggestions on such things as marketing, inquiries, and agents. (Cont. in TofC).

This is a companion to The Creative Writing Handbook - now in its second edition. It is very much aimed at the individual writer, based on the idea that real writing comes from within and that writing is a craft, skill with determination, art with attitude. The book is filled with useful ideas and inspiring techniques for exploring and exploiting resources available, both within and without. It focuses on three major areas - the writer's roots (family, class and gender), the writer's resources (memory and language) and the writer's art (form and technique). Chapters focus on many topics, including how memory shapes a writer's material, the pro-creative force of words and the ambiguities of art and artfulness. Many examples of established writers' works are cited to give the fledgling writer much practical help.

A Creative Writing Handbook for African Writers and Students

A Creative Writing Handbook for African Writers and Students

Creative writing is a relatively new phenomenon in African universities, as the influence of the American higher education system gains ground on the continent. Whilst there are many creative writing course books that focus on American/European audiences, there are almost no books with an African literary emphasis in mind, placing African literature and writing into a wider literary context and tradition, and targeting African writers, students and teachers of creative writing. Intending to fill this gap, this book is meant for teachers and students of creative writing, poetry and African literature on the African continent and beyond, especially young African writers.
