Back to Creative Writing School – eBook – non fiction
Quick description: It is 30 practical fiction and life writing exercises that range from writing horror and magic realism to creating three-dimensional characters. Aimed at adults and college students who haven’t had an opportunity to write creatively for some time, many experienced writers have been in touch to say that they have also used it to generate ideas for their next project.
Bridget Whelan is an English novelist with strong Irish roots who has been teaching creative writing at university and in adult education for nearly 10 years. She has also been writer-in-residence at a community centre serving the unemployed and low-waged. She lives in Brighton on the south coast of England.
