9780155053014: The College Handbook of Creative Writing

The College Handbook of Creative Writing is a best-selling textbook designed for all creative writing courses. Covreing fiction, poetry, and drama, it explores such across-the-genres subjects as theme, setting, characters, plot, point of view, tone, style, description, dialogue, thoughts, time, images, and sounds. There are also useful chapters on The Performance Factor, Fundamentals of Writing, and Writing as a Career, which includes sample listings of jobs for writers. Contemporary and classic selections serve to illustrate discussions and act as models to promote the writing process, and are followed by exercises and writing suggestions at the end of each chapter. A glossary of literary terms and a bibliography complete this concise textbook, resulting in a design that allows for a maximum of information in a portable little book.

About the Author:

Robert DeMaria received his PhD in Modern British Literature at Columbia University. He has directed writing programs in several universities and was an editor at Macmillan. The bulk of his creative work consists of his 20 novels, but he has also published poetry, an off-Broadway play, and a libretto for an opera. For several years he was the academic dean of the New School for Social Research. He was also the director of an overseas program for American students and writers in residence. His work has been highly praised in publications such as THE LONDON TIMES, THE NEW YORK TIMES, THE BOSTON GLOBE, THE WASHINGTON POST, and many literary magazines. He and his family now divide their time between Long Island and a house in Mallorca, Spain. His latest novel is BLEECKER STREET BLUES, set in Greenwich Village.

Review:

"THE COLLEGE HANDBOOK OF CREATIVE WRITING really has the best combination of instruction, exercise practice, and models."
