For beginning and intermediate creative writing courses (General/Fiction/Poetry) that use a workshop approach.

 

Message:  This workshop-based textbook offers a hands-on, interactive approach to writing fiction and poetry.

 

Presenting the fundamental elements of both genres, the text illustrates the creative writing process and guides the students through several drafts of various student sample writings as if they were participating in an actual workshop. Clearly written and organized, it also includes student samples, class-tested exercises, and an easy-to-use guide to the workshop process.

About the Author:

JEFF KNORR: A specialist in both technical writing and poetry at Clackamas Community College, Jeff coordinates the department's efforts in computer-assisted instruction. Jeff and his co-author Tim Schell have also launched the Clackamas Literary Review a prestigious national literary magazine, which offers a contest and poetry, fiction, and essays by leading writers.

TIM SCHELL: Committed to promoting writing. Tim also created the Clackamas Literary Review and serves as co-editor with Jeff Knorr: He specializes in the teaching-and writing-of fiction at Clackamas. He has won the prestigious Martindale Prize for Long Fiction in 1993 and has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize for a story published in 1995.

From the Back Cover:

A useful and real introduction to writing Fiction and Poetry, Mooring Against the Tide closely models the creative writing workshop approach. Organized by genre and then divided by various elements, guest writers share their definitions of Voice, Sound, Point of View, and so forth and then share their own students' work through drafts to allow readers to witness the creative evolution of poems and stories in progress.

This creative writing text will serve as a guide to steer through sometimes rough and unsure waters until the writer is safely moored against the tide.
