This book is a practical guide to creative writing, providing advice on style and form, and help with developing work to be read or heard and how to get published. Drawing on interviews with other writers, and her own long experience as a poet and tutor, Julia Casterton examines many kinds of writing - autobiography, poetry, dialogue, short stories, writing for screen and longer fiction. The third edition includes three completely new chapters, covering preparing poetry for performance and publication, writing your own myth and how to do research. This final chapter will be based on interviews with a novelist, poet and script-writer and will provide a checklist of the stages needed to research a story, poem, novel or film.
