Beginning with the premise that creativity has the potential to make work and learning environments more productive-and possibly more dangerous-the ideas in this collection will complicate visions of what writing centers can and should be. Striking a balance between theory and practice, readers will learn about creative tutor training and staff meeting activities, how to use toys to tutor and how to tutor creative writers, and, finally, how to implement creative outreach programs such as Stanford's poetry slams and fiction readings, Sonoma State's writing playshops, Iowa's invitations and Voices, and Lansing Community College's Portfolio Pandemonium Midnight Madness. Those who are in search of ways to infuse their centers with creativity and fun will find Creative Approaches to Writing Center Work to be an invaluable, inspirational resource."@en ;
