Creative Writing: An Introduction to Poetry and Fiction is a brief guide that offers plenty of options for the two-genre creative writing course. Adapted from David Starkey’s successful Creative Writing: Four Genres in Brief, it starts with lively and highly-praised instruction on the basics of reading and writing poetry and fiction. Then it presents a wide and versatile selection of model contemporary poems and stories for students to admire and emulate. Throughout, it offers a range of checklists to help students shape their poems and stories, as well as inventive assignments to fire students’ imaginations and get them creating on their own.
