When it comes to writing, The Practice of Creative Writing has a straightforward message to convey: you are capable of doing this, and giving it a shot is something you should do. The Practice of Creative Writing is a book that teaches students who are taking their first creative writing class how to trust their own voice, how to experiment with form, and how to develop a writing process that enables them to spend more productive time at the desk. The book is designed for students who are taking the introductory course. Writers are encouraged not to confine themselves to a single genre early on, but rather to work across and within a variety of genres and to concentrate on developing a writing practice that places a premium on patient close observation as well as the use of pattern, energy, and shape techniques.
An approach that teaches creative concentration, close reading, and the generation of pages has been developed by Heather Sellers, a writer who herself writes in a variety of genres. Heather’s method is lively, welcoming, and student-centered. At the same time that she teaches her students the significance of discipline, form, and craft, she also gives them opportunities to experiment and be playful with their work. The Practice of Creative Writing was written by Heather Sellers, who is also an accredited online instructor, with the intention that it would be utilized in both traditional face-to-face classrooms as well as online education settings.
The goals for the current module are presented at the beginning of each chapter. Prompts and writing practices are organized in an organized fashion. Each and every chapter concludes with both hybrid and experimental writing prompts in addition to genre-specific writing projects. Students are encouraged to explore an even more extensive variety of cutting-edge and contemporary literary works through the readings that are included in this updated edition. Students can improve their writing by working harder on their writing thanks to a new chapter that focuses on creative ways to approach revision as a shaping practice that is engaged throughout the writing process.
