"Joe Rein, Chris Drew, David Yost, and the other essayists...[have] taken creative writing pedagogy to the next level."
       - Stephanie Vanderslice, author of Rethinking Creative Writing

"In Dispatches from the Classroom you go right up to where the teaching is done. This book is full of hard-won advice and smart thinking...The essays here aren't merely reflections on what worked one day and what didn't another--rather, they're researched explorations into what's possible in the creative writing classroom. Possible, and necessary."
       - Liam Callanan, English Department Chair, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

Dispatches from the Classroom is a collection of pedagogical essays written by graduate students with an emphasis on practical classroom application. Divided into four sections--Laying the Ground Rules, What is "Appropriate" for the Workshop?, Teaching "Technique", and The Hybrid TA--Dispatches explores issues of daily concern to creative writing instructors as they relate to recent theoretical discussions in the discipline. The essays within cover a wide variety of classroom matters, from traditional creative writing issues such as workshop, revision, grading, and craft, to the more contemporary issues of censorship, research, and mental health. Also examined is the unusual blend of tasks that Teaching Assistants face, addressing ways that creative writers can apply their skills across disciplines.

Book Description Continuum Publishing Corporation, United States, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book. With emphasis on practical classroom application, this up-to-date and refreshingly honest collection of essays is a wonderful resource for teaching creative writing. Dispatches from the Classroom is a collection of pedagogical essays written by graduate students, with an emphasis on practical classroom application. Divided into four sections - Laying the Ground Rules , What is Appropriate for the Workshop? , Teaching Technique , and The Hybrid TA , it explores issues of daily concern to creative writing instructors from many viewpoints. Although these essays draw on recent theoretical scholarship, the emphasis remains on ways in which theory can be applied to course structure, student interaction, and other practical concerns. Also examined is the unusual blend of teaching assignments that Teaching Assistants face, addressing ways that the creative writer can apply her skills to composition instruction and even writing center tutoring. These essays have been selected from the work of current graduate students in creative writing, all of whom have very recent experience of dealing with these specific issues in the classroom. This anthology will not only provide Teaching Assistants with an introduction to current issues in creative writing pedagogy, but also with a much-needed teaching resource for their introductory courses.
