Pat Boran’s The Portable Creative Writing Handbook is a popular creative writing manual which has been in print for over 15 years and offers beginning creative writers a host of useful and inspiring games and formal structures to help them get writing.
A creative writing workshop in your pocket.
How do writers write? What do they do when they’re stuck for ideas? Or how do they take those still vague ideas to the next level, maybe even all the way to publication?
Whether you belong to a writing group running low on steam, or are struggling on your own and looking for some helpful direction, this book – now in its 4th edition – offers all the practical assistance you’ll ever need.
Covering everything from ideas for generating raw material to form and technique in poetry and prose, prize-winning poet and editor Pat Boran (who has conducted hundreds of writing workshops throughout Ireland and abroad) takes a hands-on, practical approach to the creative writing process, concluding with a new section for those considering their own first steps towards publication.
Accessible, enjoyable and stimulating, The Portable Creative Writing Workshop is an ideal creative writing handbook for anyone setting out on the writer’s journey.
