Writing in Action provides a step-by-step, practical guide to the process of writing. Although the emphasis is on creative writing, fiction, poetry and drama, it also covers autobiographical writing, the writing of reports and essays. Because this is a book about process, rather than product, Writing in Action also looks at the practice of adaptation and editing.
Writing in Action:

  • shows new writers how to get started
  • develops the confidence of more experienced writers
  • encourages experimentation and creativity
  • stimulates critical awareness through inclusion of illustrative texts
  • encourages writing as a skill, as well as an art-form

Writing in Action enables new writers to get close to the experience of writing; the questions writers ask, and the choices they make. The book is crammed with practical suggestions and self-evaluation exercises, as well as invaluable tips on style, sentence structure, punctuation and vocabulary. This is an ideal course text for students and an invaluable guide to self-study.

About the Author:

Paul Mills is Lecturer at the University of Ripon and York.

Review:

'Despite its origins in higher education, there is a lot of material in this book that will be useful for A level teaching, both literature and language syllabuses, and, indeed, there is much that would be worth using even earlier.' - Nate News

'This is a largely descriptive guide. I can imagine it being a useful set text for a creative writing class.' - Roy Johnson, Mantex
