Back to Creative Writing School

‘The creative writing bible’ says C.S. Quinn, bestselling historical fiction author of The Thief Taker This confidence-building book is about discovering the kind of writer you want to be and becoming the best writer you can be. The 30 writing exercises will help you to take risks and experiment with language, and give you permission to make mistakes along the way, because the writer who didn’t make a mistake didn’t write anything worth reading… It’s for poets and fiction writers and people who want to think in ink. It’s for travel writers, day dreamers and story tellers, published novelists and absolute beginners. This book isn’t really about going back to school, unless your school was a bit like Hogwarts (without quidditch or the scary bits). It’s about releasing your inner creative writer and making your own kind of magic on the page. ‘I recommend this book to all my students, and I recommend it to you. Great stuff.’ Alex Pheby, Head of Creative Writing, University of Greenwich

Demystifying Dissertation Writing: A Streamlined Process from Choice of Topic to Final Text

“A wonderful tool for assisting students through the rocky road of dissertation writing. I would recommend this book to anyone who works with any graduate students who are considering continuing their studies and those who are already in a doctoral program.”?NACADA Journal

“I was so impressed with this book that I offered to write the foreword for it.”? Rick Reis, editor of the Tomorrow’s Professor eNewsletter

“Whether you’re inching towards a dissertation topic, choosing an adviser or already coping with the last stage of doctoral work, this book will be a life-saver. “?JoAnn Moody, Faculty Development and Diversity Specialist

Research shows that five strategies correlate with the successful completion of a dissertation:

•Establishing a consistent writing routine
•Working with a support group
•Consulting your advisor
•Understanding your committee’s expectations
•Setting a realistic and timely schedule

Building on these insights, this book is for anyone who needs help in preparing for, organizing, planning, scheduling, and writing the longest sustained writing project they have encountered, particularly if he or she is not receiving sufficient guidance about the process, but also for anyone looking to boost his or her writing productivity.

Few scholars, let alone graduate students, have been taught habits of writing fluency and productivity. The writing skills imparted by this book will not only help the reader through the dissertation writing process, but will serve her or him in whatever career she or he embarks on, given the paramount importance of written communication, especially in the academy.
