Abstract:

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. After an introduction, the next five chapters each investigate 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 7 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 "Working Toward a Draft" exercises encourage students to think ahead about the direction and possibilities of their work. - Publisher.
