Creative writing: writers on writing
Volume editor: Amal Chatterjee
Creative Writing: Writers on Writing anthologises original literary work by eight contemporary authors – Amal Chatterjee, Colm Breathnach, Fred D’Aguiar, Jane Draycott, Philip Gross, Kathryn Heyman, Sabyn Javeri-Jillani, and Emily Raboteau. Dealing with birth and death, love and ambition, domestic drama and foreign adventure, they take the reader to the country (Ireland, Guyana, England) and to the city (Delhi, Karachi, New York and Prague).
The pieces are accompanied by reflective essays in which the authors explore the creative process behind the writing. For readers, the essays provide insights into the works themselves; for writers, they provide insights into literary craft; and for students on creative writing courses, they provide diverse models of how to discuss one’s own writing.
‘Diverse work of a very high standard…each author offers a model for the kind of reflective material which is required of degrees, but, hopefully more than that, is a means to a greater understanding of a writer’s own interests, ambitions and achievements ’ – Paul Wright, Writing in Education
‘This book is not only a good idea, it is a good read, and also very useful for teaching. What more could you want?’ – Jeremy Fisher, Text
