This stimulating workbook is aimed at committed writers and students of Creative Writing who want to engage with ideas about writing and develop their craft and practice.

Including specially designed writing exercises and illustrative extracts, this innovative guide will inspire and challenge. It is an essential resource for anyone who wishes to master the art and practice of Creative Writing and galvanise their talent to professional and publication level. Contributions by: Linda Anderson, Theodore Deppe, George Green, Graeme Harper (aka Brooke Biaz), William Herbert, Lee Martin, Jenny Newman, Jayne Steel and a Foreword by Patricia Duncker.
