Product description

Written by best-selling author Janet Burroway,Imaginative Writing -- an introduction to creative writing -- covers all four genres: creative nonfiction, fiction, poetry, and drama. Imaginative Writing discusses elements of craft common to all creative writing before delving into the individual genres. Each of the first five chapters investigates a specific element of craft--Image, Voice, Character, Setting, and Story--from a perspective that crosses all genres. Chapter 6 explores development and revision and serves as a bridge between the craft chapters and genre chapters. The last four chapters examine individual genres: Creative Nonfiction, Fiction, Poetry, and Drama. This unique organization allows students to experiment with creative techniques shared by all genres before deciding which form best suits their imagination. Unique "Try-This" exercises help students develop writing skills, while new "Working Toward a Draft" exercises encourage students to think ahead about the direction and possibilities of their work
