Wendy Bishop and David Starkey have created a remarkable
resource volume for creative writing students and other writers
just getting started. In two- to ten-page discussions, these
authors introduce forty-one central concepts in the fields of
creative writing and writing instruction, with discussions that are
accessible yet grounded in scholarship and years of experience.
Keywords in Creative Writing provides a brief but
comprehensive introduction to the field of creative writing through
its landmark terms, exploring concerns as abstract as postmodernism
and identity politics alongside very practical interests of
beginning writers, like contests, agents, and royalties. This
approach makes the book ideal for the college classroom as well as
the writer's bookshelf, and unique in the field, combining the
pragmatic accessibility of popular writer's handbooks, with a
wider, more scholarly vision of theory and research.
