Cathie Hartigan and I are very excited today because we have finished our new guide to creative writing - The Creative Writing Student's Handbook.
We have both been teachers of creative writing for a very long time and have had the huge pleasure of seeing many of our students become published writers.
But what distinguishes the commercially published writer from one who is still trying hard to climb the mountain?
We came to the conclusion that the students who do well tend to be the ones who are good learners. So we've written a book which we hope will help all students to be good learners. You'll find the book on this website - www.creativewritingmatters.co.uk - in free instalments beginning on February 1st 2013.
We hope you'll find it useful and entertaining. Do let us know what you think!
