THE COLLEGE HANDBOOK OF CREATIVE WRITING is a best-selling textbook designed for all creative writing courses. Covering fiction, poetry, and drama, it explores such across-the-genres subjects as theme, setting, characters, plot, point of view, tone, style, description, dialogue, thoughts, time, images, and sounds. There are also useful chapters on The Performance Factor, Fundamentals of Writing, and Writing as a Career, which includes sample listings of jobs for writers. Contemporary and classic selections serve to illustrate discussions and act as models to promote the writing process, and are followed by exercises and writing suggestions at the end of each chapter. A glossary of literary terms and a bibliography complete this concise textbook, resulting in a design that allows for a maximum of information in a portable little book.
