Beyond the Workshop arrives at a crucial time in the debates around creative writing studies. More and more writers, students and scholars are asking the questions: What is the role and future of creative writing in the academy? Does the workshop remain central to creative writing studies? What comes 'beyond the workshop'? Unlike many other studies on the evolution of the creative writing workshop, Beyond the Workshop not only provides a compelling suite of essays on the subject, but also contains a range of practical creative writing exercises. - The exercises are original and effective triggers from the contributors to Beyond the Workshop who are all writers and teachers of creative writing. - International expertise: poets, novelists, short story writers, creative non-fiction writers and essayists from the UK, Ireland and the US.
