The Creative Writing Handbook Summary


The Creative Writing Handbook by Edited by John Singleton

This revised and updated edition of The Creative Writing Handbook now includes new chapters on writing for stage and radio and on writing screenplays for film and television. Written by professional writers and tutors, it covers all aspects of the writing process, from drafting first thoughts to shaping them into polished and publishable work. In a series of lively and stimulating chapters, all major areas of writing are explored, from screen-writing to short fiction, from autobiography to experimental prose. The Handbook offers new and experienced writers a whole range of creative ideas, sound advice and open-ended tasks for exploring experience, mastering technique and thereby releasing the full potential of the imagination. As most taught courses in creative writing are in workshop form, each chapter includes invaluable ideas on how to run group sessions and offer a rich fund of suggestions for developing writing beyond the workshop.

The Creative Writing Handbook Reviews


'...The Creative Writing Handbook is worth reading for its chapter on screenwriting alone. In fact, the book's range is so broad - from writing for film, stage and radio to short fiction, autobiography and experimental prose - that almost any developing writer will find their concerns addressed...one of the book's strengths is its workshop tie-in's at the end of each chapter, making it invaluable for anyone teaching creative writing at university or A-Level.' - Amanda Cameron, Amazon.co.uk
