Explorations In Creative Writing

Kevin Brophy
This set of reflective essays about the writing life examines the poetics and politics of reading as a writer, teaching and learning about writing in an academic or informal setting, and pacing oneself through writing projects. Academic investigations about the medieval concept of the writer and the novelization of the poem accompany more practical discussions about keeping a writer's sketchbook and conducting research. The growth of creative writing programs and the particular role of the artist in Australian society is explored.
