Synopsis:

Janet Burroway's bestselling Imaginative Writng:  The Elements of Craft explores the craft of creative writing in four genres:  Fiction, Poetry, Drama, and Creative Nonfiction.  A trade author as well as a professor of creative writing, Burroway brings her years of teaching and writing to this book.  "Try-This" exercises appear throughout each chapter. Provocative and fun, these exercises help writers develop the specific writing skills discussed within the text.  “Working toward a draft” exercises encourage writers to develop their ideas into complete drafts.  In response to reviewer requests, the preface “Invitation to the Writer” has been expanded into a full chapter. This new chapter introduces writers to important skills such as reading like a writer, journaling, and participating in the writer’s workshop.  This book offers lots of ideas and encouragement at a great price!

 

 


Review:

KEY BENEFIT:

 

Written by best-selling author Janet Burroway,Imaginative Writing—an introduction to creative writing—covers all four genres: creative nonfiction, fiction, poetry, and drama.  The elements of craft common to all creative writing are discussed 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 writers to experiment with creative techniques shared by all genres before deciding which form best suits their imagination.  The last four chapters examine individual genres: Creative Nonfiction, Fiction, Poetry, and Drama.

 

Aspiring creative writers — of creative nonfiction, poetry, fiction, or drama.
