Summary

Written by best-selling author Janet Burroway, Imaginative Writing--an introduction to creative writing--covers all four genres: creative nonfiction, fiction, poetry, and drama.

Imaginative Writing discusses elements of craft common to all creative writing before delving into the individual genres. Each of the first five chapters investigates a specific element of craft-Image, Voice, Character, Setting, and Story-from a perspective that crosses all genres. Integrated readings from talented and renowned writers illustrate the chapter topics. Chapter 6 explores development and revision and serves as a bridge between the craft chapters and the genre chapters-Creative Nonfiction, Fiction, Poetry, and Drama. This unique organization allows students to experiment with creative techniques shared by all genres before deciding which form best suits their imagination. Unique "Try-This" exercises help students develop writing skills, while new ''Working Toward a Draft'' exercises encourage students to think ahead about the direction and possibilities of their work.

In keeping with Longman's "Penguin Academics" series, Imaginative Writing offers an attractive, trade-format book at an affordable price.
