Exploring writing as a practice, Amanda Boulter argues that the writer should be open to ideas and learning that might expand creative possibilities. Boulter draws from the work of writers, critics and theorists to show how cultural and literary debates can help writers to enhance their own fiction. Negotiating the creative-critical crossover, "Writing Fiction" is a lively and approachable book that enables students to develop practical writing skills and a greater critical awareness of creative possibilities.

For the series: 'The series Harper proposes is the next step in the ongoing creative writing/criticism discussions that have dominated the field in the last decade or so. Students need texts that are overtly informed by this discussion. Professors realize this and will most likely jump at the chance to use them in their courses...' - Stephanie Vanderlice, Assistant Professor of Writing, Central University Arkansas, USA 'There is certainly great potential here for marketability; as the editor points out, there is certainly a bit of a gap in the market at the moment as regards the mixing of creative and critical approaches.' - Johnathan Taylor, Lecturer in English, Loughborough University, UK 'I believe this project has potential and could provide an exciting and innovative series of text books for students in higher education. The books look well structured and cover a wide-range of material. The idea of linking creative and critical approaches in a more obvious way is a great idea and would certainly help students to think more objectively about their writing.' - Jayne Steel, Department of English and Creative Writing, Lancaster University, UK
