These essays, stories and fragments are about how writing gets done. They are also about how being a writer colours the experience of reading, talking, teaching - of living. Much more than a primer for aspiring authors, this book transports the reader through the dilemmas of becoming a real writer. Novelist and poet Kevin Brophy eloquently reflects on the processes of writing, of teaching and studying writing. Peppered with Brophy's personal experiences and private thoughts, often humorous, always sentient, this is an original, highly readable text for any person interested in creative writing.
