Creative Writing Studies: Practice, Research and Pedagogy, editors Graeme Harper and Jeri Kroll

See review by Donna Lee Brien in the April 2009 issue of TEXT

Donna Lee Brien says: 'This collection makes a truly international contribution to the field... The book that the editors have compiled comprises a series of discrete, loosely linked, articles that have one thing in common. They all feed into ongoing discussions regarding a number of issues that have been of concern within the discipline for some time. These include how to nurture a critical or theoretical understanding of creative writing as a discipline; how to develop both successful teaching methods and practice-led research in the discipline; and how creative writers who are also teachers and/or postgraduate students can manage the competing, and sometimes irreconcilable, demands of these roles.'

Creative Writing: Theory beyond practice edited by Nigel Krauth and Tess Brady

See review by nike bourke in the October 2007 issue of TEXT

Creative Writing: Theory beyond practice sets the agenda for creative writing studies in the next ten years.

Here writers, teachers and theorists identify theoretical underpinnings for creativity and writing in a broad spectrum of experience - architecture, psychology, ecology, philosophy, physiology, love, morality, sculpture and the body. This new research lays innovative foundations for insight into the nature of writing.

A book for practitioners, teachers and students, it prepares a way for understanding the frameworks in which creative writing takes place in the early twenty-first century.

If you found TEXT useful over the last ten years, you will find this new work a significant step beyond TEXT.

UWA Press New Writing Series

Terri-ann White, series editor of the New Writing Series and Publisher at UWA Press, invites manuscripts to be sent for consideration. After liaising with program coordinators in Australian universities to source potential manuscripts for the New Writing series, she is now interested in encouraging writers who may not yet be finished with their projects to consider sending details for future submissions.

UWA Press has established rigorous guidelines to ensure a high standard for the list. This includes sourcing novels and shorter prose from postgraduate creative writing courses in universities across Australia, where exciting new works from emerging and established writers have been produced over the last decade or so. By introducing this series, UWA Press is recognising the role of Australian universities in nurturing and supporting writers, and contributing to the continuing production of Australian writing.

The two titles chosen to launch the New Writing Series are A New Map of the Universe by Annabel Smith and Cusp by Josephine Wilson:
