Creative Writing: Theory Beyond Practice

By Nigel Krauth, Tess Brady



Creative Writing: Theory Beyond Practice sets the agenda for creative writing studies in the next ten years. Here writers, teachers and theorists identify theoretical underpinnings for creativity and writing in a broad spectrum of experience - architecture, morality, psychology, ecology, philosophy, physiology, love, sculpture and the body.

This new research lays innovative foundations for insight into the nature of writing. A book for practitioners, teachers and students, it prepares a way for understanding the frameworks within which creative writing takes place in the early twenty-first century.
