Creative writing; a practical guide, 3d ed.

Casterton, Julia.

Palgrave Macmillan


187 pages




Casterton (City Literary Institute) gives practical advice for beginning creative writers, whether they are working in memoir, poetry, dialog, short stories, or longer fiction. She describes the creative process and how it applies to writing, characterization, making a short story, speaking in different tongues and different tones, tension and energy, narrative, and the special considerations of poetry, including preparing it for readings and publication, and working for, rather than against, love scenes and love writing. In the last chapters Casterton outlines the process of research, writing that is meant not to be shared, and writing for an audience.
