Description

This book advances creative writing studies as a developing field of inquiry, scholarship, and research. It discusses the practice of creative writing studies, the establishment of a body of professional knowledge, and the goals and future direction of the discipline within the academy. This book also traces the development of creative writing studies; noting that as the new discipline matures-as it refers to evidence of its own research methodology and collective data, and locates its authority in its own scholarship-creative writing studies will bring even more meaning to the academy, its profession, and its student body.
