A comprehensive guide for improving your creative writing. This coursebook takes aspiring writers through three stages of practice: gathering - getting started, learning how to keep notes, making observations and using memory; shaping - looking at structure, points of view, character and setting; and finishing - being your own critic, joining workshops, finding publishers. Throughout exercises and activities encourage writers to develop their skills. Contributions from forty authors provide a generous pool of information, experience and advice. This book should be of interest to those who are just starting to write as well as those who want some help honing work already completed. It should suit people writing for publication or just for their own pleasure, those writing on their own or writing groups.
