KEY BENEFIT: Written by bestselling author Janet Burroway, Imaginative Writing—an introduction to creative writing—covers all four genres: creative nonfiction, fiction, poetry, and drama. The elements of craft common to all creative writing are discussed before delving into the individual genres.
KEY TOPICS: Each of the first five chapters investigates a specific element of craft–Image, Voice, Character, Setting, and Story–from a perspective that crosses all genres. Integrated readings from talented and renowned writers illustrate the chapter topics. Chapter 6 explores development and revision and serves as a bridge between the craft chapters and the genre chapters–Creative Nonfiction, Fiction, Poetry, and Drama. This unique organization allows writers to experiment with creative techniques shared by all genres before deciding which form best suits their imagination. The last four chapters examine individual genres: Creative Nonfiction, Fiction, Poetry, and Drama.
