A to Z of Creative Writing Methods, 2022

Chorality essay in A to Z of Creative Writing Methods, an alphabetical collection of essays to prompt consideration of method within creative writing research and practice.
Almost sixty contributors from a range of writing traditions and across multiple forms and genre are represented in this volume: from poets, essayists, novelists and performance writers, to graphic novelists, illustrators, and those engaged in multi-media writing or writing-related arts activism.

Accessible and provocative, A to Z of Creative Writing Methods lays bare new developments and directions in the field, making it an invaluable resource for the teachers, research students and scholar-practitioners in the field of creative writing studies.
