With these words, written long before his Iowa Writers' Workshop became world famous, much imitated, and academically rich, Paul Engle captured the spirit behind his beloved workshop. Now, in this collection of essays by and about those writers who shared the energetic early years, Robert Dana presents a dynamic, informative tribute to Engle and his world. The book's three sections mingle myth and history with style and grace and no small amount of humor. The beginning essays are given over to memories of Paul Engle in his heyday. The second group focuses particularly on those teachers—Robert Lowell, John Berryman, Kurt Vonnegut, for example—who made the workshop hum on a day-to-day basis. Finally, the third section is devoted to storytelling: tall tales, vignettes, surprises, sober and not-so-sober moments. Engle's own essay, "The Writer and the Place," describes his "simple, and yet how reckless" conviction that "the creative imagination in all of the arts is as important, as congenial, and as necessary, as the historical study of all the arts." Today, of course, there are hundreds of writers' workshops, many of them founded and directed by graduates of the original Iowa workshop. But when Paul Engle arrived in Iowa there were exactly two. His indomitable nature and great persuasive powers, combined with his distinguished reputation as a poet, loomed large behind the enhancement of the Iowa Writers' Workshop. This volume of fine and witty essays reveals the enthusiasm and drive and sheer pleasure that went into Iowa's renowned workshop.

Peter Elbow And Pat Belanoff S Being A Writer A Community Of Writers Revisited A Social Expressivist Approach To First Year Composition

This thesis serves as a pedagogical introduction to the theory of social-expressivism, or the convergence of two main composition theories: expressivism and social constructivism. The author conducted a textual analysis of Peter Elbow and Pat Belanoff's Being a Writer: A Community of Writers Revisited using Thomas Huckin's context-sensitive method of examination to trace social-expressivist patterns throughout the textbook. The author's analysis of her course syllabus, writing assignment prompts, and peer workshop scripts verify the value of social-expressivism as a theory and classroom pedagogy that develops students' "composing flexibility," or the ability for students to compose private and public texts while recognizing the natural intersections of personal and academic discourses.

The perspectives of children, teachers and professional writers are often absent in the pedagogy of writing. Highly Commended for the UKLA Academic Book Award 2013, Writing Voices: Creating Communities of Writers responds to such silent voices and offers a text which not only stretches across primary and secondary practice, but also gives expression to these voices, making a new and significant contribution to understanding what it means to be a writer. Drawing upon recent research projects undertaken by the authors and others in the international research community, this fascinating text considers the nature of composing and the experience of being a writer. In the process it: explores the role of talk, creativity, autonomy, metacognition, writing as design and the shaping influence of literature and other texts; examines young people’s composing processes and attitudes to writing; considers teachers’ identities as writers and what can be learnt when teachers engage reflectively in writing; shares a range of professional writers’ practices, processes and perspectives; gives prominence to examples of writing from children, teachers, student teachers and professional writers alongside their reflective commentaries. This thought-provoking text offers theoretical insights and practical directions for developing the teaching and learning of writing. It is an invaluable read for all teachers and trainees, as well as teacher educators, researchers and anyone with an interest in the pedagogy of writing.

So, You Always Wanted To Be A Writer. You Might Want To Reconsider. Robert Markland always wanted to be a writer, but he’d only published two short stories over the years. When he learns about a writers’ commune in Southern Indiana informally known as the “monastery of writers” he believes it will provide his best, last chance at literary success. Markland, in his 40s, leaves his wife and two children in Omaha, Neb., and moves to the commune where he discovers a disparate group of writers - some talented, some vain and pretentious - but he tries his best to improve his craft. “...a story of dreamers, doers and an America content to settle for commercialization....” - Ted Evanoff, Business editor, Memphis Commercial Appeal. “... brings us deep into the world of literary effort ... a look behind the curtain.” - Michael J. Brien, MFA, Southern New Hampshire University, College of Online and Continuing Education; Former Editor, Amoskeag: The Journal of Southern New Hampshire University. “A self-absorbed amateur writer embarks on a quest to find out if he has genuine talent or not ... a story that is about writers and for writers ... insights about the art as well as tributes to successful writers.” - Ruth Holladay, former Features Editor, The Indianapolis Star.

This is the first comparative study of literature written by writers who fled from East-Central Europe during the twentieth century. It includes not only interpretations of individual lives and literary works, but also studies of the most important literary journals, publishers, radio programs, and other aspects of exile literary cultures. The theoretical part of introduction distinguishes between exiles, émigrés, and expatriates, while the historical part surveys the pre-twentieth-century exile traditions and provides an overview of the exilic events between 1919 and 1995; one section is devoted to exile cultures in Paris, London, and New York, as well as in Moscow, Madrid, Toronto, Buenos Aires and other cities. The studies focus on the factional divisions within each national exile culture and on the relationship between the various exiled national cultures among each other. They also investigate the relation of each exile national culture to the culture of its host country. Individual essays are devoted to Witold Gombrowicz, Paul Goma, Milan Kundera, Monica Lovincescu, Miloš Crnjanski, Herta Müller, and to the “internal exile” of Imre Kertész. Special attention is devoted to the new forms of exile that emerged during the ex-Yugoslav wars, and to the problems of “homecoming” of exiled texts and writers.

The award-winning author’s tips on writing groups and networking: “Witty, insightful and generous . . . a must-read for anyone who wants to write” (Judy Blume). When Hilma Wolitzer finished writing her first short story, she had no idea what to do next. She didn’t trust her family members to give honest critiques, and most of her friends—though they tried to be helpful—knew little about writing fiction. But her creative life changed when she attended a local writing workshop and discovered the joys of working within an artistic community. Since good workshops and conferences are often expensive or difficult to find, Wolitzer provides a guide to building a workshop of your own. With dedication and drive, an informal writer’s group can become as useful as any college course—and much more fun. Wolitzer shows how to build a group, how to make it effective, and how to keep going when a member hits a snag. She also offers solid advice on many aspects of writing and publishing fiction. Writing may be a solitary occupation, but in the company of writers, it never needs to be lonely. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Hilma Wolitzer, including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.
