Approaches to Writing

Edited by Graeme Harper, University of Wales, Bangor 

These highly accessible books will enable students to develop both practical writing skills and a greater critical awareness of creative possibilities. Each title will negotiate the creative-critical crossover, defining Creative Writing criticism and how it differs from that of Literary and Cultural Studies, as well as forming key links between creative practice and critical understanding. Each title in the series will take a similar form based on linking creative practice with ways of increasing critical awareness of creative practice and of its results.  

In the 'Foundations' section of each book, the reader will be introduced to both creative and critical texts, and ideas, which occupy the more 'canonical' aspects of creative practice and critical understanding of that practice (as per the genre being discussed).  

In 'Speculations' the reader will be exposed to other possibilities, alternative/comparative ways of seeing, alternative/comparative ways of writing, and ways of contextualizing both practice and critical understanding.  

Each section will conclude with a brief 'key points' summary and then offer a selection of exercises which highlight the creative/critical discussions.
