From the Publisher:

Combining theory, practical advice, and examples in each chapter, this introduction to creative writing not only explores the elements of effective writing that are applicable to ALL genres, but considers the creative writing enterprise and the necessary "writerly attitude."

From the Back Cover:

Pearson Education is dedicated to being a socially responsible company that has a positive impact on society–both in this country and throughout the world. Here are some ways Pearson Education is making a difference:

our community

· We offer a paid summer internship

program that gives students an insider’s

view of the publishing process. We also

invite college graduates who are

passionate about education to begin

their careers with us in any of our

locations around the world.

· The Pearson Choices program allows

faculty and students to choose from a

range of texts and media formats that

meet their teaching, learning, and

budget needs.

· The Pearson Student Advisory Board

brings college students together with

the company’s leadership working to

shape our publishing future.

our people

· We were named one of the “2008

World’s Most Ethical Companies” by

Ethisphere magazine, one of the “Top

100 Companies for Working Mothers”

by Working Mother magazine, and a

media sector global leader in the Dow

Jones Sustainability Index.

· We offer a 100% tuition reimbursement

plan for employees seeking an

advanced degree in any job-related

educational program; we also offer

numerous professional development

opportunities for employees to

develop their skills.

· Volunteers from Pearson companies

across the U.S., Africa, and Latin

America participate in Jumpstart’s Read

for the Record annual campaign to

bring attention to the importance of

early education.

our environment

· We were the first global

publishing company to publicly

disclose our policy with regard

to the environmental characteristics

of the paper we purchase.

· We expect to be a climate-neutral

company by the end of 2009.

Our current reuse/recycle rate

for unsold books is 99%.

· We’re investing in ways to deliver

our content digitally to students

and instructors to reduce costs

and environmental impact
