Abstract / Summary

For educators in the discipline of creative writing, the combined experience of authors throughout the ages offers a wealth of valuable information. However, such lore can also be problematic for students and practitioners as lore can be inherently additive; it can be difficult to identify and abandon processes that do not work, to distill efficacious pedagogy from mythology and superstition. This adherence to lore also tends to be a US-centric endeavor. The Place and the Writer examines the spread of creative writing around the world in order to challenge many areas of the received wisdom that persist in the field as well as some that have emerged alongside and because of changes in the publishing industry. By redirecting this dialogue through the perspectives of voices from outside the traditional poles of English-language scholarship, we interrogate the connections between teaching practices and issues of identity, culture, and practice. The chapters in this volume therefore decenter historically dominant views and voices in creative writing.
