About the Author

Nancy Dafoe is a published poet and fiction and non-fiction writer, in addition to being an English educator working and living in Central New York. Her book Breaking Open the Box: A Guide for Creative Techniques to Improve Academic Writing and Generate Critical Thinking was published by Rowman & Littlefield Publishers in March 2013 and recommended by Choice.


'Playing with language and incorporating techniques changes not only how students write but how they think about writing,' author Nancy Dafoe tells us in her latest book, Writing Creatively: A Guided Journal to Using Literary Devices. Dafoe's new book looks at writing and the process of understanding not only as a guided journal, but also, and especially, as a guided journey.It is a journey deftly guided by Dafoe through demonstration notes to teachers and to students, and through examples of literature that appear in the book in order to illuminate the goals of the journey. 'Improving writing is a life-long process,' Dafoe notes. So is the journey that she sets before us; it is a journey that begins and continues with what discover in ourselves, our students, and our writing. -- Karla Alwes, distinguished teaching professor of English, State University of New York College at Cortland
Breaking Open the Box is a text that reminds all educators to remain focused on creativity in the classroom. Writing Creatively: A Guided Journal to Using Literary Devices, Dafoe's new book, provides that rare space in pedagogical writing: a place to meaningfully apply my creativity within Dafoe's framework. -- Keith Ward
These journals are appropriate for writing students in the most basic skills classes to more advanced creative writing classes. Excellent models are provided to inspire students and instructors to play with the various creative writing techniques. Even reluctant writers will find themselves producing journal entries they take pride in. -- Susan Cerretani, associate professor of English and coordinator of developmental English, Tompkins Cortland Community College (TC3)
In a time where creativity and practicality are needed in classroom writing practice more than ever, Writing Creatively: A Guided Journal to Using Literary Devices offers a refreshing approach to these needs. Whether you teach English or are looking to inspire students to write effectively in other disciplines, Writing Creatively will not disappoint. -- Amanda Smith, English educator and writer
