Review: "This book introduces students to the practice and art of creative writing and creative reading. David Morley discusses where creative writing come from, the various forms and camouflages it has taken, and why we teach and learn the arts of fiction, poetry and creative nonfiction. Accessible, entertaining and groundbreaking, this is not only a useful textbook for students and teachers of writing, but also an inspiring read in its own right."--BOOK JACKET
